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.
Georgia Elks News
Please send in articles and photos for your Lodge and Auxiliary. Also, please remember to place The Georgia Elks News on your mailing list so we receive your Lodge Bulletin (electronic copy preferred). Our goal for the newspaper is to have a news item from every Lodge and Auxiliary in each and every issue. Remember to tell us who, what, when, where, and to identify any people in your photos. As a reminder, Lodges/Auxiliaries should obtain permission to publish photos of children that are identified in photos, either from a parent, Aidmore, or the school where the photo was taken.
The deadline for the May issue of The Georgia Elks News was January 4, 2014.
Send news/photos in by deadline to:
Please attach no more than 4 photos (full size jpg) per e-mail; identify the people in the text of the e-mail; article may be sent as MS Word attachment (.doc or .docx) or copy and paste the article into the text of the e-mail.

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 email@example.com.
