Sanford Elks Lodge #1470

The ambition and goal of the Americanism Committee is to quicken the spirit of American patriotism, and to stimulate an awareness–a genuine feeling of pride and respect toward our country–so that we as members of the Benevolent & Protective Order of Elks will become constant reminders to the people of our Nation that America truly means freedom and that Elks Care–Elks Share.
