As members of the Elks-USA from across the nation gathered in New Orleans, Louisiana, from July 13-17, Michael W. Dimmick, of Kenai, was installed as District Deputy to the Elks National President for the lodges in the West District of the Alaska State Elks Association. He will serve a one-year term.
More than 6,000 members belong to 17 Elks lodges in Alaska. Nationally, in 2012–2013, the Elks gave more than $400 million in cash, in-kind donations, and volunteer service. Your local Elks lodge fulfills the Elks’ longstanding commitment to provide help for the disadvantaged and programs for veterans and youth in their communities.
