Frankfort Elks Deliver Thanksgiving to Local Seniors in Need

Posted by Elks 530 | Posted in News | Posted on 11-27-2017

For years now, the Frankfort Elks Lodge has taken time out on the day before Thanksgiving to help our local seniors in need. This year, as in the past, we delivered meals and gift cards to several needy seniors. The seniors were selected with assistance from the Franklin County Senior Citizens Center.

Pictured above is Frankfort Elks Lodge #530 member Kela Simpson (center), and her granddaughter Chloe Simpson (left), delivering two turkey meals and $50 Wal-Mart gift card to Claudia Younger. These gift cards help seniors purchase eesentials that they may otherwise not be able to afford. Not pictured above but also helping deliver was Frankfort Lodge member Sandy Moore.

Thanks to those members that helped make this possible for helping our lodge live out the Elks motto, “Elks Care, Elks Share.” Want to find out more about how you could help make our community a better place as part of the Elks? Talk to a member about joining, or visit our membership page!

Frankfort Elks Help Homeless Veterans

Posted by Elks 530 | Posted in News | Posted on 11-14-2017

There are many homeless veterans that need our help, especially with the winter months upon us. In an effort to help those vets stay warm and safe this winter, the Frankfort Elks Lodge recently delivered over $2,000 worth of new sleeping bags, long johns, winter boots, and sock hats to the Lexington VA Center Clothing Room. These items will be provided to the homeless veterans in Fayette and surrounding counties.

Pictured above making the donation are (L to R) VA Clothing Room Supervisor Ana Miranda, Elk members Sandy and Bill Moore, and Paula and Ricky Groves, and VA Volunteer Alfredo Miranda.

The Frankfort Elks Lodge provides help to veterans throughout the year. If you’d like to learn more about our efforts to help veterans, and how you can become a part of the great work that our lodge does, check out our membership page!

The Elks Family Picnic is Coming Up on August 26

Posted by Elks 530 | Posted in Lodge Events | Posted on 08-24-2017

Elk members, our annual Elks Family Picnic is coming up on Saturday, August 26!

This year’s picnic will, as always, kick off with a golf tournament at Lakeview Springs. If you’d like to play, plan to be at the golf course by 8:30 AM. Teams will be formed, and the tournament will tee off around 9 AM.

The picnic itself will kick off around 11:30, when we’ll start serving food. As always, we’ll have inflatables for the kids to enjoy, cornhole boards, plenty to eat and drink, and more.

You can also expect our normal silent auction filled with fun items (if you have something to donate, bring it along!), as well as the live baked goods auction, so bring your sweet tooth!

We’ll see you at the Hancock Pavilion at Lakeview Park this Saturday!

Frankfort Elks Donate Over $2,000 Worth of Food to Franklin County Senior Citizens

Posted by Elks 530 | Posted in News | Posted on 05-10-2017

The Franklin County Senior Citizens Center provides a number of services to seniors in our community. One of those services is an emergency food pantry. For many seniors, money is tight, and there are times when a budget just doesn’t cover all the food that is needed. That’s where the food pantry comes in, and the Frankfort Elks Lodge is glad to pitch in and help.

The Frankfort Elks recently donated over $2,000 worth of food to the emergency food pantry at the Senior Citizens Center. As you can see in the picture above, it took a truck and three Elks to get it all there! Pictured (from L to R) are Diana Rogers, Outreach Coordinator for the center, and Elks Sandy Moore, Kela Simpson, and Bill Moore (rear).

This donation has become a yearly tradition for our lodge, and we’re proud to say that we’re helping Franklin County’s seniors in need. Want to get involved? Check out our Membership page for information on how you can become a member!
