Frankfort Elks Initiate 22 New Members

Posted by Elks 530 | Posted in Lodge News | Posted on 12-05-2018

Our Frankfort Elks Lodge has been growing of late. In fact, we led all Kentucky lodges in membership growth for the 2017-18 year. We’re looking to keep the momentum going this year, and this week, we made a big step in that direction by initiating 22 new members into the lodge.

This is one of the largest initiations we’ve held at our lodge in many years, and we’re excited to welcome all of our new Elk brothers and sisters. Our new members are pictured above. If you see them around the lodge, make sure you welcome them!

Frankfort Elks Deliver Thanksgiving to Shut-In Seniors

Posted by Elks 530 | Posted in Lodge News | Posted on 12-03-2018

Just as we do every year, our Frankfort Lodge took time to deliver some holiday cheer to shut-in seniors in our community. This year, eight seniors received not only two meals for Thanksgiving, but also a $50 Wal-Mart gift card to help these folks purchase necessities.

The Senior Activity Center was closed Thanksgiving Day and the day after, thus the need to deliver two meals to insure these seniors have enough food for the long weekend. The Elks ask that our community remember all of our seniors during the upcoming holidays.

It’s Time for Thanksgiving Dinner at the Lodge!

Posted by Elks 530 | Posted in Lodge Events, News | Posted on 11-05-2018

One of our favorite traditions at the lodge is our annual Thanksgiving Dinner. It’s less than a week away, as this year it will be held on Sunday, November 11. The meal kicks off at 2 PM, and we want all of our members to come down and join us!

There are two ways to participate. You can either bring a dish to share with your fellow members, or you can donate $7 that will be used toward the cost of the turkeys and hams the lodge is providing (Please note that any excess funds remaining will be donated to the lodge Veterans fund).

If you’re planning to attend, please sign up on the sheet located in the bar. Also, please note what dish you plan to bring. This will help us make sure that everyone has plenty to eat come Sunday.

We can’t wait to see you all there!
