Fire Donations

The Paradise Lodge building was lost in the Camp fire.  There is a plan to rebuild this Lodge.  We collected enough in donations to purchase $6250 in gift cards.  Several of our members went up to the Chico Lodge to deliver the cards to the Paradise ER.  His team wore T-shirts that said, “From the ashes, we will rise again.”  This is a testament to the spirit of our Elk brothers and sisters. 

Here are the highlights from tonight’s Paradise meeting. This was the first meeting since the Camp fire. We had a nice time, good dinner, and enjoyed meeting everyone. You should make a trip to Chico Lodge, you won’t be disappointed!
