Oglesby’s William R. Gandolfi Sr. was installed as district deputy for the BPO Elks for lodges in the Northwest District of the Illinois Elks Association and will serve a one-year term.
He was installed during the BPO Elks’ National Convention, July 4-7.
The BPO Elks is a patriotic and charitable organization committed to making its communities better places to live. 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.
As part of the Elks’ ongoing commitment to help students achieve their goals, the Elks National Foundation awards annual college scholarships worth a total of more than $4.5 million to students across the country. To help local lodges make positive changes in their communities, the Elks National Foundation’s Community Investments Program provides local Elks lodges with more than $14 million to help them build stronger communities.
