Elks leader to visit Westerly


WESTERLY — Millard C. Pickering, the national president of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks and a resident of Oklahoma, will visit Westerly on Sunday to meet with local Elks members.

Pickering and his wife, Susanne, will be honored at the Westerly lodge during a dinner banquet.

Prior to the reception, Rhode Island State Association officers will meet with Pickering to discuss association programs and endeavors.

State President Barry F. Cole will discuss the ways that the Rhode Island Elks support the organization’s national programs.

As the Elks’ Grand Exalted Ruler, the order’s title for its highest office, Pickering is responsible for promoting Elks’ key goals of community service; assistance for the handicapped, veterans and the less fortunate; and sponsorship of youth programs and scholarships.

Pickering was initiated into Bristow, Okla., Lodge No. 1614 in 1976, and has served the Oklahoma Elks Association in numerous positions.

He holds a bachelor’s degree from the College of the Ozarks and a law degree from the University of Tulsa. Millard has served as assistant district attorney in several jurisdictions in Oklahoma, as well as assistant attorney general and staff attorney to the Oklahoma Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training. He has coordinated the criminal justice and law enforcement programs at Tulsa Community College since 1997.
