Christmas in July, sponsored by the Elks Orange County District, was held at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Long Beach for disabled, in-patient veterans. Of the 10 Elks Lodges in the district, five lodges shared and participated in the Christmas in July event. That included Buena Park, Garden Grove, La Habra, Mission Viejo and Orange.

The Elks provided the veterans cash prize, goodie bags and helped those who needed visual or physical assistance to play the game. Many of the Elks walked around the floor visiting and confirming Bingo wins or serving refreshments. The vets appreciated the cash prizes as they are able to choose what they wanted at the facility canteen.

In October, the other five Elks Lodges from the Elks Orange County District, Fullerton, Westminster, Newport, Huntington Beach and Santa Ana will conduct their visit as well. The veterans look forward to these events and an evening of fun and more bingo games.

There are other visits at the VA facility during the year. It doesn’t take very much time out of the year to provide some fun and prize money to these fellows who sacrificed so much for their country. God bless these vets and thank you to all of the representatives from the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks.
