The following notice is from Bill Modi who Chairman of our Grants committee. (There is an article, including a picture, on the back page of the latest issue of your “Elks” magazine regarding the Rockin’ L&D Ranch.)
From Bill Modi:
The La Jolla VA Hospital was the proud recipient of YOUR Escondido Lodge’s Beacon and Spotlight Grants ($5,500) in the fall of 2020. Part of the grant money is being used to support an equine therapy program for disabled vets at the Rockin’ L&D Ranch.
We are planning to visit the Ranch and observe the program this Friday, March 5 from 9—10AM. Anyone interested can meet at the Lodge at 8:30 to carpool, or go directly to the Ranch.
Not only do we want to support our vets, but a large Elk turnout will produce photographs that will be sent to Grand lodge to perhaps ensure future funding.
