Sam Waters (pictured) admires the renovations done to the Lodge Room in the local Elks Lodge. The old ceiling tiles have been removed and replaced with Thermax board and blue pine. New LED can lights and rustic chandeliers will be added soon. Elks member Ed Stein told the Courier at the Elks Open House on March 27, all materials and labor to update the Elks Lodge Room were sourced locally. A full story on the Elks' remodel will appear in next week's Courier.
