WALLACE — The Wallace Elks Lodge brought some excitement to the small Idaho town last week when they held their 121st annual roundup.

The four day event promoted Elks ideals and raised money for their charity fund.

This fund goes toward youth scholarships, the Elks’ Christmas fund, veterans programs, and promote Americanism in our community.

Events kicked off last Wednesday when Haylie Betham was named Wallace Elks Queen at the Lodge’s pageant.

This was followed up by Lodge night on Thursday and a steak dinner on Friday.

The main event kicked off Saturday afternoon with a parade through town that included Elks members, emergency service officials with their vehicle, Wallace athletes, pageant contestants, local organizations, and many more.

The parade was lead by Elks lodge trustee and past Exalted Ruler- Col. William Wallace (Wait...I mean John Turner).

After the parade fun, attendees enjoyed a pig roast, music, and kids for the young ones.

The Wallace Elks Lodge #331 is one of the oldest in the nation and is located at 419 Cedar Street.

For more information about the organization, call them at (208) 753-4255 or visit their website.
