Frankfort Elks Donate Flat Screen TV To Lexington VA

Posted by Elks 530 | Posted in Lodge News | Posted on 06-07-2011

Frankfort Elks Lodge #530 recently donated a 51″ Flat Screen HD Color TV to the Lexington VA Hospital for use in the patients’ newly renovated recreation room. Bill Moore, Elks ER, said that the money for the TV was donated by the Elks membership without any fund raising activities. Every month, the Elks take gently used clothes and household goods to the VA for the clothes closet.

There are many homeless Vets in Lexington who use the VA facilities for medical needs as well as personal needs. ER Moore says the members of the Frankfort Elks Lodge want to honor the service and sacrifice of our veterans by working to help meet their daily needs.

If you would like to donate to the VA, or if you have any gently used clothes or household goods that you would like to donate to our efforts, please contact the lodge.

The Frankfort Elks #530 held their 4th Annual ‘Kids with Cancer’ Golf Scramble on June 5th at Juniper Hills Golf Course. ‘Kids with Cancer’ is a Kentucky Elks Association State Charity Project which provides funds raised from all KY Lodges for donation to two camps in Kentucky. Indian Summer Camp, located in the eastern part of the state and Camp Quality, in the western part.

These two camps provide a fun filled week for children with cancer. These kids just get to be kids and not just patients for a whole week. This year the golf scramble had 19 teams participate. On behalf of the children and their families we thank everyone for making this scramble a success. According to Renee Moss, Golf Scramble coordinator, the Elks raised over $3500.00 for ‘Kids with Cancer’ from this scramble. Thank you, Frankfort, for helping us help these kids.

First place in the tournament (low gross) went to John Flynn, Pat Childers, Mark Waylon and Matt Wingate (pictured below).

Low net winners were Willie Payton, Becky Myers, Terry Denny and Julie Ryan (pictured below).

Frankfort Lodge Plays Santa for Lexington VA Veterans!

Posted by Elks 530 | Posted in Lodge News | Posted on 23-01-2011

Frankfort Lodge 530 donated over $300.00 to the Veterans at the Lexington VA, Leestown Division hospital by placing $10.00 in 30 Christmas Cards. These cards were hand made by the 3rd thru 5th grade classes at Frankfort’s Peaks Mill Elementary School.

Frankfort Elk, Allison Teegarden, teacher, volunteered her classes to help with this Elk project. According to Allison, the students were excited to learn about Veterans and what they have sacrificed for their country. Allison says that this was not only rewarding for the Veterans but for the students and they want to do another project for “their heroes”.

The Veterans told Bill and Sandy Moore, who presented the cards, how much these cards meant to them and how special they made their Christmas. These cards were hand written messages, from the kids, expressing their appreciation to the Veterans for protecting this country and their lives.

Here’s a photo of two of the Veterans with the cards they received.
