Menudo and Pozole Breakfast January 28th

Wow – what a crowd, the tables in the social parlor were packed and people had to resort to sitting at the bar. The Menudo and Pozole were both great. I personally enjoyed the Menudo. The Pozole people I spoke to were blown away with generous meaty soup. According to one of the committee members, the lovely chili based breakfast soup has doubled in quantity from 30 to 60 pounds of meat. And since they are still selling out quickly, they plan to up size the amount to 90 pounds. So if you arrived after 9:00 AM and did not get a chance to enjoy, look out for the next offering which will be on 2/25/18. The Elks Horn says it starts at 8:00 AM but the correct time is actually 7:30 AM. Come early so you don’t miss out 😉

Come and enjoy both kinds of breakfast, Menudo and Pozole. Our committee prepares some of the best this side of Tijuana. It is fresh as can be and a real treat and it comes with all the trimming.

Oh, after breakfast come help the decorating committee clean out decorating room, we could use all the help we can get. This will take place at the lodge in the dining area. See you there!

Firefighters Appreciation Night January 24th

The night was wonderful and the house was packed. A common theme resonated with all the nights winners, “I could not do this with the support of my family and fellow firefighters” Our first respondents definitely had more challenges this year than most.

Representatives from our City Counsel including Mayor Patino as well as County Supervisors were on hand to honor these hero’s. And in typical fashion the Elks there in force. It was a great night to enjoy fellowship and recognize the sacrifices the fire fighters make in supporting us all.
