November 11, 2017 - Watertown Elks Lodge Honors Veterans

Laying A Wreath To Honor Veterans

Watertown Elk Members honor veterans by laying wreaths at area ceremonies earlier today. In the photo above, Tim Griffith and Exalted Ruler Cheryl Clark, lay a wreath at the ceremony held at the VFW Post 1400 in Watertown, NY. A second wreath laying ceremony took place at the Jefferson County Office Building. The Watertown Elks Lodge participated in that ceremony as well. Let us always honor our millions of veterans as the heroes of our country as they have protected our democracy, our freedom, and our way of life. Click on the links below for additional photos.
