From Sonja Hickey on behalf of the Sequim Elks:

Sequim resident Bill Ellis hopes his plan for raising money for disabled veterans catches on across the nation.Ellis, an 83-year-old Korean War veteran who said he’s not quite retired, is spearheading a Fourth of July event, “Americans Helping Our Disabled Veterans and Their Families.”

The Sequim Elks Lodge is sponsoring and hosting the all-day event at the lodge at 143 Port Williams Road.

Admission will be free. Donations will be solicited.

All donations will go to the Disabled American Veterans Chapter 9, based in Port Angeles, which serves Clallam and Jefferson counties, “with the provision that 100 percent goes to disabled veterans and their families,” Ellis said.

- The Fourth of July fundraiser will include entertainment, breakfast from 8:30 a.m. to noon, hot dogs in the afternoon, a flag-raising at 11:45 a.m. and U.S. flags for the first 200 youths to arrive, Ellis said.

He hopes to get donations for an auction and added that he already has received significant donations for the event from several businesses.

  • Noon to 12:45 p.m. — Straight Wheelers (square dance).
  • 12:45 p.m. — Sweet Adelines.
