On September 30, 2011 members of the Green Valley Elks #2592 presented Continental School teachers with $600 worth of school supplies at a school assembly. About 250 students, first through fourth grades attended the assembly. The Elks have been collecting donations from its members for the past 2 months. The Continental teachers expressed there gratitude for all these supplies. Lodge officers attending this assembly were Arturo Gabaldon (Exalted Ruler), Cheryl Ponzo (Leading Knight), Carol Sturdevant (Loyal Knight) and Frank Sturdevant (Tiler). Susan Trecartin was the lodge photographer.
Also at this assembly, Dr. Virginia Juettner (superintendent and principal) was presented with a new American Flag for their large flag pole at the front of the school from the Green Valley Elks. Carol Sturdevant, Loyal Knight and Americanism Chairman presented the flag to her. Dr. Juettner was very grateful as their old flag was badly tattered due to wind damage.
