Elks Veterans, of all eras, are strongly encouraged to participate in this parade on the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War. Honolulu Elks Lodge 616 will have a trolley with seats for twenty (20) veterans. THESE SEATS ARE FIRST COME, FIRST SEATED.
We will be decorating the trolley from 3:00 – 3:45 p.m. on the 27th of May. You are welcome to assist. Boarding will be from 3:45 – 4:00 p.m. for transportation to FT. DeRussey; for a ceremony at 4:30 p.m. We will re-board the trolley at 5:30 and the Parade, down Kalakaua Avenue, will begin at 6:00 p.m. We should be back at the Lodge about 7:00 p.m. where the decorations will be removed from the trolley.
At that time, Veterans can join the party at Kapiolani Park OR if there is enough interest, a party in the Lodge.
