At the annual state convention of the Kentucky Elks Association this past weekend, Jim Dorris of Madisonville Lodge #738 was installed as the new State President, and his wife Mary Kay is our new First Lady.
The officers and members of Frankfort Lodge #530 would like to extend our very best wishes for the coming year to Jim and Mary Kay, and we are looking forward to having them come visit us in Frankfort both for their official visit and the 2018 State Convention.
We’d also like to recognize and thank our outgoing State President and First Lady, Bill and Kathy Frommeyer of Newport Lodge #273. They have been amazing representatives for our state over the past year, but we’re also sure they’re ready for a little well-earned rest and relaxation.
Finally, congratulations are also in order for our very own Charlie Cunningham of Frankfort Lodge #530, who was installed as President-Elect at that same convention.

Each year, the Frankfort Elks and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet team up to collect winter coats and clothes for the veterans at the Lexington VA. This combines the efforts of the Elks to collect clothing with Shannon Martin’s annual coat drive at the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. Last week, this year’s donations were taken to the VA.
Pictured above (left to right) are Glenn Cleveland, Veteran; Ana Miranda, Clothing Room Supervisor; and Bill Moore, PER of the Frankfort Elks Lodge. Bill delivered the truckload of clothing to the VA, which included over 80 coats and an abundance of winter clothes.
The Elks mission is that “So long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them.” The Frankfort Elks Lodge is grateful to all who donated, and hope that this reminds everyone to think of a veteran that could use your help.

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!
