On July 17 the Elk’s Club hosted the 37th annual Elk’s Picnic for LightHouse clients. For over 30 years Bruno Pardini and a group of Elk’s volunteers have hosted the picnic at Junipero Serra Park in San Bruno. For the past few years, Maureen Schroder and other Elk’s volunteers have assumed responsibility for coordinating the annual event. In addition to providing food and festivities, the Elk’s also donate $100.00 every year towards raffle and Bingo game prizes.
Longtime LightHouse client, Betty Washington, has been attending the annual Elk’s sponsored picnic since its inception in 1976:
“I’ve been attending the Elk’s picnic for over 35 years. It is such a wonderful event. The Elks are so gracious. They work so hard to make sure we have a good time. There’s always plenty of food, drink, laughter, and friendly faces. I think this year’s picnic was probably one of the best in recent years. Over 50 people attended, many of whom I hadn’t had contact with in years.”
