If you’re like most of us, we’re ready to leave all that snow in the rearview mirror and start playing some golf!

This year’s annual charity golf scramble will be held on Saturday, June 13 at Juniper Hills Golf Course here in Frankfort. Lunch will be served starting at 11:30 AM, with a 1:00 PM shotgun start to follow. 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, 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.

It’s basketball season, and that means it’s once again time for Hoop Shoot! The local Frankfort shoot will be held at the Franklin Co. High School gym this Sunday, January 11.

Hoop Shoot is the annual Elks free-throw competition that lets boys and girls from 8 to 13 years of age compete for a chance to represent their community at the National Hoop Shoot in Springfield, Mass., home of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. At the conclusion of the National Shoot, one boy and one girl from each age group will win a national title and will have their names permanently inscribed at the Basketball Hall of Fame.

For the local shoot this year, we will use the following schedule:

  • Boys and girls 8-9 year olds will shoot at 1:00 PM
  • 10-11 year olds will shoot at 2:00
  • 12-13 year olds will shoot at 3:00

Contestants will be assigned an age-group based on the age that they will be on April 1, 2015. Contestants must be 8 years old by April 1, 2015, to participate. Please bring a copy of the shooter’s birth certificate, without it they may not be able to advance to the next level.

If you have any questions about the Hoop Shoot, or you want to volunteer, please contact our Local Hoop Shoot Director, Jerry Harley, at (502) 803-6332. Volunteers need to be at the gym by 12:15. We welcome any new volunteers to the program, but please contact Jerry to ensure that proper attire is worn the day of the contest.

Best of luck to all our shooters in this year’s contest!
