Members of the Pompano Beach Elks Lodge celebrated the Fourth of July with an indoor picnic. Air conditioning made the indoors a more comfortable place to eat, drink, talk with friends and dance.
The event included a BBQ lunch, dancing and a chance to relax and visit with old and new friends.
“We are all having a good time today,” said Craig Drum, chairman of the Fourth of July event.
Roy Kronenberg, a member of the Pompano Beach Elks Lodge for 36 years, loved the Fourth of July celebration. “This is great. People are having a good time today,” he said. Roy spent the day with longtime friends in the Lodge.
Kate Scudder, bar manager, said she was glad to see longtime members getting together and having fun.
Greg Knowles and Tom Mulligan were among the volunteers who enjoyed preparing food for the event. Money raised from Elks Lodge events goes toward charity.
