Circling the Square

Chuck Samples, pictured here with Deb Hill and Sharon Brown, taught elementary school in Jackson for 31 years. He has been an Elk for 32 years and has held every office, including two stints as Exalted Ruler.

The Elks Lodge No. 1713 celebrated mothers on May 14 with a gourmet brunch at the Senior Center of Jackson Hole. A steak and egg brunch with side dishes and dessert was served to 150 guests. As always the mimosas were a favorite. Carnations were given to all the mothers and a short program was presented by Elks members. Orchids to the Elks for sponsoring this wonderful annual event.

The Elks have an impressive membership of 572 men and women. Lance Ash is the Exalted Ruler with officers Doug Stanley, Christie Reinhardt, Jody McGill, Michele Voorhees, Rob Weed, Gail Miller, Brad Boyer, Jessica Schiers and Brad Abrams.
