Elks are a force for good in the community

January 29, 2012

WOONSOCKET — Charity, justice, brotherly love and fidelity.
Maurice E. Berube has spent the better part of 11 years trying to promote and practice the four cardinal virtues of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. But it wasn't until last month, when he found himself the recipient of a simple act of kindness by an 11-year-old city girl, that he really understood what it meant to be an Elk.
Berube, Grand Exalted Ruler of Woonsocket Elks Lodge #850, says it happened in December when he was helping deliver 227 food baskets to needy families during the holiday season.
