In November, Elks Lodges honor our nation’s veterans for their sacrifices, that resulted in the freedoms we enjoy today. For Elks all over the U.S.A. November is Veterans Remembrance Month. This year Leechburg Lodge 377 is planning a very special Veterans Remembrance Luncheon on Sunday, November 4th in the Lodge Ballroom, to honor Staff Sgt. Stevon Booker of Allegheny Township, Army Spc Joshua Justice Henry of Apollo, Army Spc. William Sturges of Spring Church, and Marine Sgt Lonnie Wells of Vandergrift — four young men from our area who made the supreme sacrifice for our country in Iraq. Following a buffet luncheon of roast beef, broasted potatoes, carrots, warm applesauce, salad, rolls and butter, dessert and beverage, a special program is planned to present the families of each of these brave men, the B.P.O.E Medal of Valor. All proceeds from this event will benefit the Allegheny Township War Memorial and Elks Veterans Programs. Tickets for this event will be $10 for adults and $8 for children 10 years of age and and younger. Doors will open at 12:00 Noon with Lunch to be served from 12:30 - 1:00 PM. For information on where to obtain ticket, call the Lodge after 4 PM daily at 724 842-8071 or the Lodge Secretary at 724 295-4816. Seating will be limited, so plan to get your tickets early!!
