ELKS LODGE RECOGNIZES VETERANS HONOR GUARD
The Florence Elks Lodge hosted the Florence Veterans Honor Guard Nov. 14 and provided them with a meal of prime rib and all the trimmings. The honor guard offers final rights throughout the year to our deceased veterans. They do this free of charge and everyone is a volunteer. They have to provide their own uniforms and do all the upkeep with a bare minimum of assistance. They also receive very little recognition. The lodge also presented a plaque to the honor guard for appreciation of all that they do. Shown, left to right, are A.A. Farley (Honor Guard), Scott Earp (House Committee Chairman), Wayne Jackson (Honor Guard), James Leslie (Honor Guard Commander), Stella Miller (Incoming Honor Guard Commander), CB Anderson (veterans chairman), and Edwin Ham (Honor Guard).
