This year, our annual golf scramble to benefit the Kids With Cancer camps is scheduled for Saturday, June 21, with a 1 PM shotgun start. Lunch will be served prior to play, starting at 11:30 AM. We’re looking for golfers and hole sponsors for this year’s scramble.

If you’d like to sponsor a hole, the fee is $50. All you need to do is click here to download the sponsor form. We’ll place a sign on the tee of a hole on the course with your name, or whatever message you specify, on it.

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.
