Palo Alto Elks Lodge to close

The Palo Alto Elks lodge will close Saturday after six decades as a community fixture.

The grand lodge ordered the shutdown after a review of the struggling chapter’s finances.
Grand Exalted Ruler Randal McClellan, based in Watsonville, on Tuesday ordered the lodge and bar closed and the locks changed. No more meetings. No more shooting pool or soaking in the whirlpool. No more private parties.
