YOUR Escondido Lodge was the proud recipient of a $4,000 Beacon Grant from the Elks National Foundation. This money is being used to support an equine therapy program for disabled veterans from the La Jolla VA Hospital who suffer from severe PTSD following service in Iraq or Afghanistan. This therapy program takes place at the Rockin’ L&D Ranch in Escondido.
Escondido Elks are planning to visit the Ranch during a therapy session Friday 10am either January 7 or January 21. Elks can gather at the Lodge 9:30 to carpool, or meet at the Ranch. Please indicate your date preference so we can go as a group. The ranch address is:
Rockin’ L&D Ranch
1019 Deodar Rd
If you are interested in visiting the Ranch please contact the Lodge office —please let them know whether you prefer to go on January 7th or January 21st —
or whether either date would be convenient for you.
As most of you know — or should know — our individual ENF contributions are returned to us as grants to be used for certain of our local Elk charities.
Those of us who visit the Ranch will have an opportunity to see firsthand the results of one of our contributions.
Chairman, ENF Grants
