Calling All Future Elks Scholars!

The 2016 Elks National Foundation's 2016 Most Valuable Student Scholarship Program is underway!
Applications are now available to download online at:
The contest is open to any high school senior who is a US Citizen and attending a college or university in the Fall Semester for 2016. Applicants will be judged on scholarship, leadership, and financial need. Applications must be submitted to our Lodge (or the Lodge that is closest to the student's permanent U.S. address) BY DECEMBER 4, 2016. This is a firm date for submission! Any applications submitted after December 4th must be eliminated from the contest per rules of the competition.

Our Lodge awards the top 3 female and top 3 male students $1000 scholarships each, and they advance to the District Judging for further consideration of District, State and National Scholarships. The Elks National Foundation awards $2,440,000.00 in scholarships annually to the top 500 students nationally! It all begins with a high school senior downloading the application and submitting to our Lodge by December 4th, so don't delay!

Lodge donates Kayak to Team River Runner

It was a glorious day at the river where we christened the new adaptive kayak in honor of our friend, Martha Scully. The kayak itself is amazing with all kinds of adaptive equipment that can be easily added or removed depending on the veteran's injury. Kayaking, or other paddle sports like adaptive SUP'ing , rafting, canoeing, etc, is a great equalizer. Individuals with disabling issues can find a level playing ground-healing waters. Paddling brings connections in many ways-social, exercise, nature, and adventure.
