ATLANTA, Georgia — Thousands of members of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the U.S. and guests gathered in Atlanta July 3-6 for the BPO Elks National Convention.

“We’ve been really fortunate as far as equipment goes. Things break when it gets cold. The guys have been really good about being careful.”
From semi-strangers to old friends, it's touching to have people wish you the best.
