Elks Lodge 391 sponsors Boy Scout Troop 2, under the direction of Scout Master Douglas Mugglin.
Brett Andrew Mugglin, son of Douglas Mugglin, will receive his Eagle Scout Badge this Saturday at the Elks Lodge in Dublin.
To inculcate the principles of Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity; to recognize a belief in God;
to promote the welfare and enhance the happiness of its Members; to quicken the spirit of American patriotism; to cultivate
good fellowship; to perpetuate itself as a fraternal organization, and to provide for its government, the Benevolent and Protective
Order of Elks of the United States of America will serve the people and communities through benevolent programs, demonstrating
that Elks Care and Elks Share.
For our Veterans:
In each of the 172 VA Medical Centers there is an Elk committee at work. Literally, thousands of Elks and
their families give generously of their time, energy and resources so that the lives of our ill and aging veterans will be
enhanced. Hundreds of thousands of hours and like numbers of dollars are devoted to programs that are designed to keep us
true to our pledge: "So long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them." And
now we've broadened our program to include outpatients and veterans who are homeless.
