Uncle Reed Wardle: Top Elk


Reed is my grandfather's brother, son of William Haston and Annie Sorensen Wardle.
Top Elk Selected
Reed Wardle of Rt. 6 was honored recently as Elk of the Year for 1975-76 by Idaho Falls Elks Lodge 1087.
Wardle was cited for his volunteer work visiting the sick, for his work on the Door Committee, meeting and greeting fellow Elks, and for giving his time, equipment and labor to help the Lodge.
In ceremonies at the Elks Lodge Wardle was presented with a plaque and a jacket by then Exalted Ruler Watie Combs.
Wardle has been an Elk for 11 years.  A construction man, he pioneered the concrete ditch lining in southeast Idaho.  He has constructed concrete ditches in Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Wyoming and Idaho.  He has been presented with an award for distinguished service in the support of the Jefferson County Soil and Water Conservation District.  He has been a Heart Fund volunteer and has been a part of Scouting for 51 years.
