Community service can be great fun!
It’s that time of the year where we need to ask for volunteers. We need to ask you if you’d like to be part of something bigger than yourself, if you’d like to help lighten other’s burdens and put huge smiles on people’s faces.
Are you good with numbers? Or, are you a people person? Or, do you know how to host a party and ensure everyone has a good time? Or, do you prefer to help with the more mundane but absolutely critical stuff?
Whichever it is, we need you!
If you enjoy making kids happy we need help with our Soccer Shoot, our Hoops Shoot, our Drug Awareness, and our general Youth Activities events. Let us know which of these you’d have the most fun with being a part.
If you’d enjoy more patriotic service, we have our Veterans Services, our Elks Memorial Day, and our Flag Day events coming up. Get in touch with us to see how you can help.
If you are more serious minded... we need you too! We have our Accident Prevention committee and our Ritualistic Committee that can use your help. There’s also our Government Relations committee as well as the State Major Project committee. Just let us know where you prefer to apply your talents.
We need hands helping with Community Projects, Lodge Activities, and even the Elks National Foundation.
Drop us a line at ElksLodge1917@gmail.comand let us know what is most fun for you or if you have any questions or want more information.
