This year’s theme for the annual Elks essay contest was What Does Veterans Day Mean to Me? Fifth-grade entries from Cape Henlopen School District provided some very heartwarming responses. Representatives from Elks Lodge 2540 in Lewes, which sponsored the local contest, visited Shields Elementary School in Lewes to congratulate its winners.
