Memorial flags were placed on the graves of 252 departed members of Seaside Elks Lodge. This year marked the 40th time flags have been placed. The tradition was begun in 1972 by Exalted Ruler Clem Paulsen. This year’s crew consisted of eleven Elks members. The leader, Larry Johnson, was a member of the original group which included Phil Hingston, Cliff Basche, Herman Beaver and Dick Walsborn.
