presented to 15 finalists in the patriotic poster contest.
"We had more than 200 entries in this year's art and photo contest
from public and parochial schools in Burbank," said club member Sam
Engel Jr. "Five finalists from each category will be on display at
the Burbank Central Library beginning on or about June 1."
Boy Scout Troop 204, sponsored by the Kiwanis since 1924, will be
on hand to deliver its historic flag ceremony, a description of the
development of the flag as we know it today. The program will end
with a pause among the audience to pledge allegiance to the flag --
joining Americans across the country -- and the "The Star-Spangled
Banner" being played by the band.
Burbank Noon Kiwanis meet at noon every Wednesday at the Burbank
YMCA, 321 E. Magnolia Blvd. For membership information, call Herb
Vincent at 848-2962.
Fred DeLange installed as Elks state vice president
Longtime Burbank resident and Elk member Fred DeLange was recently
installed as state vice president for the Elks statewide
organization. DeLange brings a wealth of experience to the new
position as he has served as exalted ruler of Burbank Lodge No. 1497
three times in his 23 years as an Elk and continues to be a fixture
at its events and proceedings.
A bit of history is also part of the mix as DeLange's father also
served the Elks as vice president. After 40 years of working for the
city of Burbank, almost 50 years of marriage and a brood of 14
grandchildren to dote on, one would think it is time to slow down a
little. But not for Fred DeLange.
Burbank Elks Lodge No. 1497 meets at 8 p.m. every Wednesday at the
Burbank Elks Lodge, 2232 N. Hollywood Way. For membership
information, call John Holt at 845-4228.
