Thousands of members of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America and guests have gathered in Tampa, Florida, from July 4-7 for the BPO Elks’ National Convention. During the convention, Charles Johnson of Sequim was installed as District Deputy for the BPO Elks for lodges in the West District of the Washington State Elks Association and will serve a one-year term.

The BPO Elks is one of the premier patriotic and charitable organizations in the United States of America and “is committed to making its communities better places to live,” representatives said.

Each year, the Order donates more than $71 million in cash and $310 million in goods and services to the needy, students, people with special needs, active-duty members of the US armed forces and their families, veterans and their families and charitable organizations, Elks representatives said.
