Elks Lodge honors local veterans
The veterans at the Cortland Park Nursing and Rehabilitation Center did not say much when members of the Cortland Elks Lodge 748 presented them with plaques Thursday.
Instead, their gratitude showed in the smiles on their faces as they examined their gifts and the way they proudly held them close as the Elks emphatically thanked them for their service.
