Mesquite Elks Lodge # 2811 in their continuing support to Beaver Dam Elementary School (AZ) recently donated American Flags to the school at a recent assembly. It was noted that the classrooms did not have individual American Flags. As Mesquite Lodge # 2811 through their PER Association had budgeted funds to help the school, the Lodge acted immediately to remedy the situation. ER Harold Straley led a delegation, consisting of PER’s Rick McDonald, Bill Oskin and members Penny Propotnik and Janet McDonald to Beaver Dam to deliver flags. The children and school staff gave the Lodge members a huge ovation for their kindness and needed donation.
