Littleton Elks Serves Meals to 60 Local Firefighters

LITTLETON, CO – The Littleton Elks Americanism Committee served 60 meals to three local fire stations in September.

This was the first food delivery by the Americanism Committee since reinstating last year. Kim Garcia was asked to serve as Committee Chair, and there are currently 11 members.

Stations #11, #12, and #13 in the Littleton Fire Department were served hot meals by Jimmy Stanley (Exalted Ruler), Kim Garcia (Esteemed Lecturing Knight), Teri Shelgren, Craig Couture, Cherie Garcia, Joyce Gabbard, and Pat Taylor.

“We served three Littleton stations and three rotations of each station,” Kim said. “They were very appreciative.”

Littleton Fire Department, known as Littleton Fire Rescue, help provide service in South Metro Fire Rescue to 561,000 residents within approximately 287.5 square miles of coverage.

The Americanism Committee is planning another food delivery for 100 local police officers and dispatchers on October 18th.


About the Americanism Committee: The ambition and goal of the Americanism Program is to quicken the spirit of American patriotism and to stimulate an awareness — a genuine feeling of pride and respect toward patriotism — so that we as Members of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will become constant reminders to the people of our Nation that America truly means freedom and that Elks Care and Elks Share. The Americanism Committee works on building relationships with students and schools to increase patriotism within our youth and school system.  We have an annual essay contest, volunteering opportunities, raising and retreating flags at schools, and teaching students proper flag etiquette.
