As a reminder, registration for the Georgia Elks Association Fall Meeting is due. Currently we have only 45 Elks registered and it is necessary that all registrations are submitted immediately so that the hotel confirmations can be completed before the cutoff date on our Elks list for the Elks rates. Please remember that you need to register for the meeting to obtain the Elk hotel rate.

ENF Impact Grant Winner

Congratulations to Covington Lodge #1806. Below is a brief explanation of how the ENF Impact Grant will help the Covington Lodge and their Community.

Covington, Ga., Lodge No. 1806 will be there for community members in need through the Elks Care Food Pantry project. Once a week, Elks will deliver and stock food at the pantry. But that's just the beginning. Elk volunteers will be there twice a week to distribute food and meet with community members. Elks will also construct a children's area at the pantry, and volunteer twice a week to watch the children while their parents shop.

Fraternally,
Jane S. Santee

Thirty-One Gifts Fundraiser For Aidmore

Bethany Jackson, PER of the Cartersville Elks Lodge, has offered an interesting and unique way to help stretch the resources for the residents at Elks Aidmore. Bethany is a consultant for Thirty-One Gifts. Many of you are already familiar with the web-based business, or probably know someone who is.

Bethany has offered to help us in two ways. She has opened up a "party" on her website for Elks Aidmore Fundraiser. The Aidmore girls will be creating a Wish List valued at under $100. One way to help might be sponsoring a Wish List for one of the residents. Secondly, you have the option of just ordering directly from Bethany by going to her website , clicking on "shop" and then going to the Elks Aidmore Fundraiser. Of these direct orders, Bethany will donate 20% of the sales back to Aidmore. If anyone is interested in hosting their own party, Bethany will donate 10% of their sales as well! Once we receive $100 in donations, we will use the money to sponsor a Wish List for one of the residents.

For additional information, or to participate, please contact Bethany directly at 770-547-5905 or email Bethany at mrsbjackson@gmail.com.
