It was really too bad that you didn’t get the facts before you gave the Elks a bad name: “Our View: Parade of Lights a wonderful event easily made better,” (Journal, Dec. 8). In the past the Elks have gladly let people park their cars in their lot. As it happened this year there was a private party that night. Would you really like to have the people who have paid to go to a party that night not have a place to park? Would you want them to walk several blocks — if they could find a space — and then walk all that distance for their party? Next time, please get the facts straight before you do such a slam.
