Five charter members of Santa Clarita Elks Lodge #2379 gathered on Tuesday night to share stories from the early years of the service club. Nathan Beverly, Bruce Fortine, Bob Tallant, Jim Williams and Bob Gill, who is also a charter officer, remembered old friends, meetings and pranks from yesteryear.
Founded on November 15, 1967, this year the celebrating will continue with: a roast for longtime Elks member Jay Larkins Sept. 9; a Friday night special menu and entertainment by “Mr. Music,” Richard Roeloffs, on Oct. 13; and a commemorative dinner on Nov. 18 honoring the Lodge’s 50 years of service to the community.
