NEW BRUNSWICK — New Brunswick Elks Lodge 324 will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Saturday, Nov. 2, to commemorate the installation of a chairlift to help the disabled ascend and descend stairs at the All Saints Veterans Apartments in Highland Park.
The chairlift is being financed through donations of a number of civic and community organizations, including the Elks National Foundation, which is dedicated to assisting in worthy community projects. Other contributors include New Brunswick Elks Lodge 324, South Plainfield Elks Lodge 2298 and Metuchen Elks Lodge 1914.
The chairlift is also being dedicated to the memory of Bob and Antoinette Eckenstein, who were strongly committed to veteran’s affairs and worked many hours on behalf of the South Plainfield Elks to bring support and comfort to veterans.
The New Brunswick Elks has 450 members from New Brunswick and surrounding communities, including North Brunswick, Milltown, Highland Park and Franklin Township.
