Frankfort Elks Deliver Over 600 Dictionaries to Franklin County Third Graders

Posted by Elks 530 | Posted in News | Posted on 12-15-2016

The Frankfort Elks Lodge has a yearly tradition that around the first of December, we deliver a dictionary to every third grader in the county. This includes students at all schools, both Franklin County and Frankfort Independent, as well as the private schools as well. These dictionary deliveries are ongoing as we speak, and this year we will hand out over 600 dictionaries to kids. Each third grader will also receive an anti-drug ribbon and a pencil along with their dictionary.

Pictured above are Frankfort Elks Sandy Moore (right) and Trey Greenwell (center), who are seen delivering dictionaries to West Ridge Elementary School 3rd grade teacher, Kimberly Young (left).

The Frankfort Elks have been delivering dictionaries to third graders for over a decade, and we plan to continue this program for the foreseeable future. It is a boon to our community, and to the kids it serves. This project is made possible each year through a grant from the Elks National Foundation. For more information on the Foundation, and how you can give, please visit their website.

The onset of cold weather means that it’s time once again for the Elks Hoop Shoot contest! If you’re not familiar with the hoop Shoot, it’s the annual free throw shooting contest for kids ages 8 to 13. Winners at the local shoot will move on the District shoot, with those winners moving on to the State level. Winners there will move on to the Regional contest in Tennessee, and Regional winners move on to the national shoot in Chicago, IL!

The best part is that there’s no cost to participate!

This Sunday, December 11, we’ll host our local contest at the Second Street School gym. All you need to do is show up and shoot. The times for each age group are as follows:

  • 8 – 9 year olds: Arrive by 1 PM, shoot from 1 -2 PM
  • 10 – 11 year olds: Arrive by 2 PM, shoot from 2 – 3 PM
  • 12 – 13 year olds: arrive by 3 PM, shoot from 3 – 4 PM

Please note that all shooters will compete at the age they will be on April 1, 2017. You should bring a birth certificate for all shooters for registration.

We’ll see you there!

Frankfort Elks Lodge #530 recently held their annual Christmas party for less fortunate children. Santa Claus, his Elf and helper Linda Lafontaine entertained with the reading of a Christmas Story. Elk members served the kids all the pizza they could eat, along with drinks and cookies.

Best of all, Santa had plenty of great gifts for all the kids to enjoy. With the help of the Elk members in attendance, all the kids had a great time.

The Frankfort Elks Lodge would like to thank all of our members who worked so hard to make Christmas brighter for these kids.

Every year, the Frankfort Elks Lodge delivers a new dictionary to every single third grade student in Franklin County. That includes all students at Franklin County, Frankfort Independent, and private schools in the county. Over two weeks in December of this year, Frankfort Elks Lodge members delivered over 650 dictionaries, pencils, and anti-drug ribbons to third graders.

We were unable to take pictures this year due to school policies. Pictured above is a Peaks Mill Elementary third grade class from our 2014 dictionary delivery.

The Frankfort Elks have been delivering dictionaries for over 10 years, and we are very proud of our members who support such a worthwhile program for the Frankfort Community. This project is funded with help from an Elks National Foundation grant. For more information on the Foundation, and how you can give, please visit their website.
