On Saturday 7 October , 2023 the Lodge Veterans Committee hosted a Veterans Luncheon to benefit all attending Veterans’. The event was catered by Committee Chairperson Jeannette Fishers daughter Victoria. The ceremonies during the event included the Pledge of Allegiance, Prayer, and trumpet music presented by Committee Co-Chairman Dale Turner. USMC MSgt, retired Philip Olivero presented a heartfelt speech to all in attendance about what our Military’s role in the history of our nation, and how Veterans are apart of that, including the challenges we face while in service and after our active service ends. The role we have played and continue to play to the nation and future. We were disappointed that our special guest, those living in Veteran Housing, and in the care of Sepulveda VA could not attend in the number expected due to transportation issues.
