Elks Rest

On May 18 seven members of St Louis Lodge #9, traveled to Bellefontaine Cemetery & Arboretum (aka BCA) to perform an Elks Rest Memorial. Dedicated on 10/11/1891, the St Louis Lodge #9 Elks Rest is the final resting place for 33 deceased members of Lodge #9. Prior to the Elks Rest Memorial Service, Bellefontaine Historians led the seven visiting members of #9 and their six guests on a trolly tour of the cemetery, stopping at various grave sites of notable deceased #9 members, not interred at the Elks Rest.
