BALLSTON SPA – From November of 2016 until recently, Ballston Spa Elks Lodge #2619 raised funds for Wreaths Across America for the Saratoga National Cemetery.

The lodge held several events, including paint and sips and two vendor and craft fairs with basket raffles; a collection jar was placed at every monthly breakfast as well as lodge functions. 

On Nov. 16, Patriot Guard Riders Captain Michael Hogan, and Patriot Guard member Cyndi Owens, were presented with a $4,100 check that will be used to purchase 250 wreaths for the Saratoga National Cemetery.

Several lodge members will be attending a Dec. 16 service at the Saratoga National Cemetery to help place the wreaths.
