To help get a kick start on Veteran’s Day activities, Exalted Ruler Jaynee Roszhart gave out Certificates of Honor to Ron Ronald Fink, Commander of the Venice Post 177 American Legion and every other Elk at the Santa Monica Elks Lodge 906. All 300 Veterans in the South Central Coast District will also receive a card of thanks and a handmade keychain made by Girl Scout Troop 415. Thank you to Deidre Welborn and her troop for stepping up and showing our Veterans that the Girl Scouts care about our Nation’s Heroes! Each certificate was signed by District Deputy Grand Exalted Ruler Robert A. Pickett and Exalted Ruler Jaynee Roszhart. Pictured are Ronald Fink and Jaynee Roszhart.
