Ballard Elks Honoring Veterans

Volunteers from Ballard Elks Lodge #827 will be at The Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Washelli on Aurora Avenue North to honor our heroes by cleaning the grave markers of our men and women who served their country. This is being led by the Ballard Lodge Veterans Committee.

The Veterans committee is also collecting paperback books and DVDs for the Puget Sound VA Center in Seattle. Maybe not Fabio, but westerns, mysteries, science fiction. They can be dropped off at Ballard Elks Lodge, 6411 Seaview Ave. N.W.
