Sulena Bryant Wins Kentucky’s Veteran Volunteer of the Year Award

Posted by Elks 530 | Posted in Lodge News | Posted on 07-08-2019

Each year, the Kentucky Elks Association awards the Veteran Volunteer of the Year Award to a person who demonstrated a longstanding commitment to improving life for our veterans. This is in keeping with our Elks pledge, “So long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them.”

At the recent Mid-Year Convention hosted by Louisville Lodge #8, the 2019 Veteran Volunteer of the Year Award was presented to none other than our very own Sulena Bryant! To those who know Sulena, this news will come as no surprise. She has dedicated herself to working with veterans. She currently serves as the Veterans Chair for our lodge, as well as the VAVS representative for the Lexington VA. She’s helped homeless veterans find housing through the Welkome Home Program, and she’s always looking for a new opportunity to help veterans.

Please join us in congratulating Sulena Bryant on this well-deserved honor! You can click the picture to the right to see a larger version of the image.

Recently, the Frankfort Elks Lodge awarded its 2019 Citizen of the Year Award to Danny Bryant, the owner of the downtown Frankfort Pic-Pac. Mr. Bryant is a fixture in the community, donating food and money to charities and feeding generations of FHS kids at lunch and after school, and most importantly, serving as an oasis in a part of town that would otherwise be a food desert. For all of these reasons, plus the fact that he’s simply a great guy, the Frankfort Elks Lodge #530 honors as its 2019 Citizen of the year, Mr. Danny Bryant.

From February 21 through the 23, nine members of Frankfort Lodge #530 attended the annual state convention of the Kentucky Elks Association in Hopkinsville, KY.

On Saturday, Charlie Martin of Hopkinsville Lodge 545 was installed as our new State President, and his wife Lana as the new First Lady.

The officers and members of Frankfort Lodge #530 would like to extend our very best wishes for the coming year to Charlie and Lana, and we are looking forward to having them both come to Frankfort for their official visit.

We’d also like to recognize and thank our outgoing State President and First Lady, Charlie and Troi Cunningham of Frankfort Lodge #530. They have been amazing representatives for our lodge and state over the past year and we are very proud of the success they have brought to the Kentucky Elks Association.

Frankfort Elks Angel Tree Christmas Party Brings Christmas to Kids

Posted by Elks 530 | Posted in Lodge News | Posted on 19-12-2018

This past weekend, our Frankfort Lodge held its annual Angel Tree Christmas Party. Needy kids from around the community were treated to a meal of pizza and treats. After everyone had eaten, Santa Claus came to visit, and brought along Mrs. Claus and Rudolph as well!

Each child received a stocking full of treats, and was able to open a gift during the party. They each took home a stack of additional gifts as well.

As you can see above, Santa was a big hit with the kids. Many thanks to all of the members who shopped for gifts, wrapped gifts, and helped plan and put on the party. We’d also like to extend a special thanks to everyone who purchased an Angel Tree ornament to help fund the party.

You can check out all the pictures from the party in the gallery below.

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!
