Frankfort Elk members, don’t forget that this Saturday is our annual Family Picnic! We’ll have food and drinks for you and your family, and of course we’ll have all the usual entertainment, including:
- Cornhole Tournament
- Baked Goods Auction
- Silent Auction
- Inflatable rides for the kids
Of course, you’ll also get to spend a gorgeous day visiting with your Elk brothers and sisters! The picnic kicks off at 12 PM at the Hancock Pavillion in Lakeview Park, so we’ll see you there! You’ll also get a chance to meet our wonderful State President, Pat Fletcher from Louisville Lodge #8, and his lovely wife Donna.
If you have any items you’d like to donate to the silent auction, or if you’d like to donate something for the baked goods auction, you can contact Sandy Moore, or just bring them along when you come.
We’re also holding our annual picnic day golf scramble at Lakeview Springs Golf Course that morning. Signups are at 7:30 AM, with a shotgun start at 8 AM. It’s a blind draw scramble, so you don’t need to bring a team. Just bring your clubs and be prepared to have a great time! You can contact Ricky May or Ellery Etherington for more information.

Also pictured with Bill is the new DDGER for the West District of Kentucky, Greg Swinney from Louisville Lodge #8.
We know that Bill will do an outstanding job in this new position. Congratulations, Bill!

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.
If you’d like to play in the tournament, we’d love to have you! You can bring a team of four, or just show up and form a team when you get there. If you want to enter your team, you can download the entry form here.
We’re extremely grateful to everyone who has sponsored holes and played in this tournament in the past, and we’re hoping to see all of you again this year as we try to make 2015 our best tournament yet! Come on out and join us for a great day on the links!

Recently, Frankfort Elks Lodge #530 donated $2,000 in groceries to restock the Franklin County Senior Citizens Center food pantry. According to Outreach Coordinator Dianna Rogers, “Our seniors sometimes need a little help with food when their income runs out before the month ends.” This annual donation from the Elks helps the Center to continue to offer this assistance to seniors in need.
