For decades, the Glendale Elks have held their annual luau at the local lodge. On Aug. 6 the membership went all out — even the stuffed elk heads were decorated with leis and straw hats. The sold-out event featured a Polynesian buffet heaped with spit-roasted pig, beef with broccoli, chicken chow mein, egg role and pineapple cole slaw. But the favorites by far were the juicy ribs and fried rice. Mai Tais at $2.50 hosted by the Gallivanter family contributed to the cheerful ambience. Add in a show and music by the Sua Family, and the $25 ticket was more than worth it according the more than 200 sated members and guests.
Glendale residents Lynda Burns and Henry Schoessler were hosts at a table that included Assistance League members Bea Wojtyla, Mary Lo Follett and more Glendale residents including Fran Benedict, Mary Rose Grim and Judy Gorham.
La Crescenta residents on hand included Dene and Bing Alcott.
