The Mesquite Elks Lodge #2811 hosted their annual Luau fundraiser for the Elks National Foundation (ENF) on Oct. 1 to a crowd of about 30 people. The ENF assists lodges across the nation in investing in their communities. Funds from the ENF are often used for scholarships, the Hoop Shoot, Drug Awareness and Veterans Service Programs. So far this year, the Mesquite chapter has received a $2,500 Promise Grant which will help fund their Youth Activities Programs. There will be another Luau dinner on Dec. 10. Shown from left are Lou Martin, Charlie Lumkee, Ronnie Tsuhaka (center), Don Worley and Gilbert Niimi. The gentlemen will perform two different dances in the next event. The public is invited by way of invitation from a current Elk member. Photo by Stephanie Clark.
