The Valparaiso Elks Lodge #500 will be providing Thanksgiving meals for Veterans.

Thanks to the generosity of Douglas Meece and the SmokeDaddy food truck, we will be offering hot, ready to eat, smoked turkey dinners to any and all Veterans and their families.

Doug will set up in front of our lodge located at 157 Jefferson St. Valparaiso, IN and start distributing dinners at 3:00PM on Saturday November 21st. Veterans can pick up the meals or enjoy them in our dining room. We will also have volunteers to deliver meals in the surrounding areas.

The Valparaiso BPOE Lodge 500 has a saying, " So long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them."
