2017 | 2016 | 2015 | 2014


June 2018: Beverly Dearborn

If anyone ever tries to tell you that ER is the most important job in an Elks Lodge, they do not know what they are talking about. The most important job in any Elks Lodge is the Lodge Secretary (although Treasurer is a close second). When Charlie Cunningham told me he was going to have to relinquish the position of Secretary due to the demands of his position as State President, I was very concerned. However, just months into her tenure as Secretary, Beverly Dearborn put any concerns I had to rest. Hardworking, precise, and conscientious, she has tackled this challenge head on and every member in this lodge owes her a debt of thanks. Next time you see Beverly in the lodge, take the time to thank her for all her hard work and her willingness to take on such a tough job!


May 2018: Bartenders and Cooks of Frankfort Lodge #530

If you have not been by the club room recently, I strongly encourage you to do so. There is a completely different vibe when you walk through the door. You can order up sandwiches, burgers and other bar food, and we now are carrying more beers than just Miller Lite and Budweiser. This Month’s Elks Spotlight shines on our bartenders and our kitchen crew. Their hard work and dedication has made the bar the place to be. So the next time you are in, make sure to thank Carla Hawkins, Bruce Day, Richard Cobb, Toni Quire or Ann Vansant if they are behind the bar, and Marla Etherington or PJ Johnson back in the kitchen!


April 2018: 2017-18 Lodge Officers

As I may have mentioned a time or two before, this was a difficult year in some respects, with six of the officers at the end of the year who were not in that position at the beginning of the year. But as have also mentioned before, we came through the trial much stronger as a lodge. So to all our officers from last year, please know that I, as the half-year Exalted Ruler, appreciate all you have done for this lodge and its members. You are all good and true Elks. Thanks again for everything. You should all be immensely proud!


March 2018: State Convention Volunteers

Our convention volunteers are the talk of Elkdom in Kentucky. The fantastic reviews the convention received were the direct result of your hard work, dedication, and attention to detail. No matter what you did or how long you worked, your efforts were important. I would name names, but the newsletter is only four pages long. Thanks again for everything! You should all be immensely proud!


February 2018: Mike Fawbush

If you have not been upstairs in the lodge room lately, you need to go upstairs and see the new paint job, which was spearheaded by our very own Mike Fawbush. It was a big job, but the end result looks fantastic! Mike was assisted on the job by several members of the lodge, including Charlie Cunningham, John Dunn, Lucinda Dunn, Dave Emery, Mary Farrell, Melody Stephenson, Kermit Wilfong and Don Willard. If you see Mike or any of his crew around the lodge, make sure you express your appreciation!


January 2018: Charley Harley and Jamie Cunningham

As many of our female members and guests can attest, the women’s restroom downstairs in the lodge has undergone a much-needed and well-received facelift. New tile, a new paint job, and a new vanity are among the highlights. This month’s Elks Spotlight highlights two members who took a major role completing the renovations: Charley Harley and Jamie Cunningham. If you see Charley or Jamie down at the lodge, make sure you let them know how much they are appreciated!
