Lodi Elks Lodge No. 1900, along with the Woodbridge Masonic Lodge, held a Memorial Day service on May 28, at the Masonic Cemetery located in Woodbridge.

Mike Dugan, Lodi Elks Exalter Ruler and a Marine veteran, was the master of ceremonies. Guest speaker was the Honorable Louis J. “Jim” Grillo, Past Grand Exalted Ruler, who was head of all the B.P.O.E. ELKS throughout the United States. Present were the U.S. Marine Corp Color Guards of Lathrop, who put on a presentation of colors (flags).

Also present were the Lodi Community Band, led by Robert Gross, who not only played a beautiful rendition of “Taps,” but the band played musical scores of the Armed Forces theme songs.

There was the laying of wreaths by the American Legion Lodi Post No. 22 and Auxilary, Disabled American Veterans Lodi Chapter No. 59, Pearl Harbor Survivors Chapter No. 10, Delta Chapter of the American Ex-Prisoners of War and the V.F.W. Boy Scout Troop No. 291 placed flags on the graves of fallen soldiers.

Suzanne Henderson, Lodi Elk Esquire, led the Pledge of Allegiance, and Eileen Dugan, Lodi Elk Inner Guard, gave the opening and closing prayers. There was a free lunch for all veterans held at the Lodi Elks Lodge prior to the ceremony.
