Elks #1248 Supports our Veterans

The Three Rivers Elks #1248 have been honoring our Veterans. 

We sponsored a golf outing and BBQ for the Battle Creek VA Hospital veterans on September 9, 2023.  Pictured is Bill Chiddister with all of our clothing and personal donations from the underwear party ($750 worth of donations) and the grant ($1900 worth of donations).

We presented a $1154 check to Stoney Summey for the St. Joseph County Veterans Affairs on July 11, 2023.   The funds will help a 28 old vet who recently returned from duty along with his wife and 3 year old child.  

The money was raised by "flagging" homes in the county.  Thanks to our Inner Guard Tabitha Sanders and her "Flag Crew" for organizing a fun "you've been flagged" fundraiser to help raise these funds, and thanks to everyone who was “flagged” and contributed. 


Underwear Party Saturday August 26th @ 7pm.

Our amazing "models" will have underwear for you to bid on and take home with you. Pork chops and chips will be available for purchase. All money raised goes to our Veterans’ needs.
