Our annual cookout for the veterans at the Lexington VA hospital is this Saturday, September 20.
If you’d like to join us, we’d love to have you. We’ll be setting up in Building 27 in the rec room. We plan to start cooking around 10:30 AM, and to serve lunch at noon.
We can still use help. Many of the veterans need help getting food and eating, so there’s plenty to do.
There will also be entertainment, as Frankfort Elks member and Disney Cruise Lines entertainer Mike Archer will be performing live.
All of the veterans really enjoy this event, so if you can help out, please come on over! If you need more information, you can contact Exalted Ruler Bill Moore at (502) 545-0587.

For the second year in a row, the Frankfort Elks Lodge is reaching out to help local seniors on Thanksgiving. There are plenty of seniors who need help, and do not have family or friends who are able to assist them. In order to help these folks have a happy Thanksgiving, the Frankfort Elks delivered 2 hot meals to each senior, and presented each of them with a $75 Wal-Mart gift card to help them purchase necessities.
