The Elks Family Picnic is Coming Up on August 26

Posted by Elks 530 | Posted in Lodge Events | Posted on 08-24-2017

Elk members, our annual Elks Family Picnic is coming up on Saturday, August 26!

This year’s picnic will, as always, kick off with a golf tournament at Lakeview Springs. If you’d like to play, plan to be at the golf course by 8:30 AM. Teams will be formed, and the tournament will tee off around 9 AM.

The picnic itself will kick off around 11:30, when we’ll start serving food. As always, we’ll have inflatables for the kids to enjoy, cornhole boards, plenty to eat and drink, and more.

You can also expect our normal silent auction filled with fun items (if you have something to donate, bring it along!), as well as the live baked goods auction, so bring your sweet tooth!

We’ll see you at the Hancock Pavilion at Lakeview Park this Saturday!

Frankfort Elks Donate Over $2,000 Worth of Food to Franklin County Senior Citizens

Posted by Elks 530 | Posted in News | Posted on 05-10-2017

The Franklin County Senior Citizens Center provides a number of services to seniors in our community. One of those services is an emergency food pantry. For many seniors, money is tight, and there are times when a budget just doesn’t cover all the food that is needed. That’s where the food pantry comes in, and the Frankfort Elks Lodge is glad to pitch in and help.

The Frankfort Elks recently donated over $2,000 worth of food to the emergency food pantry at the Senior Citizens Center. As you can see in the picture above, it took a truck and three Elks to get it all there! Pictured (from L to R) are Diana Rogers, Outreach Coordinator for the center, and Elks Sandy Moore, Kela Simpson, and Bill Moore (rear).

This donation has become a yearly tradition for our lodge, and we’re proud to say that we’re helping Franklin County’s seniors in need. Want to get involved? Check out our Membership page for information on how you can become a member!

The Frankfort Elks Lodge Annual Charity Golf Scramble is June 17

Posted by Elks 530 | Posted in Lodge News | Posted on 04-25-2017

Summer will be here before you know it, and that means that it’s almost time for our annual charity golf scramble!

This year’s scramble will be held on Saturday, June 17 at Juniper Hills Golf Course here in Frankfort. Lunch will be served starting at 12:00 PM, with a shotgun start to follow at approximately 1:30 PM. As usual, 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.

If you’d like to play in the tournament, bring your clubs and join us! 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. The entry fee is $50 per person, and includes your green fees, cart, lunch, and prizes.

We’re extremely grateful to everyone who has helped to make this tournament so successful in the past, and we’re looking forward to seeing you all again this year as we try to make 2017 our best tournament yet! Come on out and join us for a great day of golf!

Congratulations to Our New KY Elks State President and First Lady!

Posted by Elks 530 | Posted in News | Posted on 02-28-2017

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.
