Bon Voyage! Mission Viejo Elks, led by Leading Knight Mike Long and Vicky, hosted the annual “going-away party” for ER Dave McLeod and First Lady Basia Bills on Friday night as they prepare for the Elks National Convention in Houston, Texas July 2-6. Forty-two guests attended the Texas Hoe-Down Party, dined on Bens’ famous pork chops, watched Dave and Basia open gifts and ended the evening with Basia’s favorite dessert, German Chocolate cake. Thank you to Mike and Vicky for a great party, Judy Klinger, Gwen Williams and Pat Ohman for decorating and of course our top-notch kitchen crew.
