2020 Food Bank deliveries

Here are a couple more pictures Clayton took inside the main staging area. This food drive is being conducted by the “Clear Creek Veterans Coalition” and all the food is being staged at the Idaho Springs Elks Lodge. He will be there again during the week and on Saturday and will send you a few more pictures. This is an example of what the Evergreen  Elks Lodge is doing to help during this pandemic time.

How, Why & When the bell was gifted to our Lodge can be found here: https://evergreenelkslodge.com/winston-jones-legacy/

Placing the Bell: Clayton, Jack & Gene are creating a base for the special bell that has been waiting in the dungeon for a home. The bell will represent our commitment to all Veterans who have sacrificed to keep us free.

2020 National guard bbq

June – Another busy day for the Longmont, Idaho Springs, Arvada, and Evergreen Lodges working a barbecue for the Colorado Army National Guard. We prepared hamburgers, cheeseburgers, and brats for an estimated 120 soldiers. These folks are on deployment to the Denver Colorado area to help where needed. The Elks Lodge is doing their best to make life a little easier for them while they are away from home.

2020 National Guard – during the pandemic

On behalf of the Evergreen Elks Lodge 2363, I delivered 38 bags of snacks to the Colorado Army National Guard this morning. These guard personnel are on special assignment to Denver and are presently residing in hotels in the Denver area until June 8th.


Thanks to the Clear Creek County Veterans Coalition and Troy Erickson, members of the Evergreen, Golden, Idaho Springs and Longmont Lodges worked together to deliver and distribute 7000 lbs of meat, dairy, fruit, vegetables, soda, snacks, bread, pastries and ice cream to the Colorado National Guard on July 10th. A big thank you to our Elks for working together to Make A Difference.
