Norman Veterans Center 

Edmond Elks #2578 provided and served a delicious BBQ luncheon from Bibbs Catering and Smokehouse to the Veterans at the Norman Veterans Center on Wednesday, March 15 2023. The luncheon consisted of BBQ beef, Mac and cheese, baked beans, bread and a drink! A terrific turnout of eleven Edmond Elk Volunteers.  Around 50 meals were served including for the staff at the Veterans Center. In addition to the luncheon the Lodge purchased special tables for their wheelchair-bound veterans and donated a check for $536. 

This was the first luncheon served at the Veterans Center since the pandemic. It was also great to visit with longtime Norman Veterans Center Activities Director Jeannene Wade , who continues to volunteer at the Center following her retirement!!
