Elks Community Builder of the Week

Bluefield, W. Va., Lodge No. 269
On a hot summer day, there's nothing better than an afternoon at the pool. Thanks to Bluefield, W. Va., Lodge No. 269, local youth were able to share in this favorite summer pastime. An Elks National Foundation Promise Grant helped fund this pool party, during which the kids learned how to swim and found out what the Elks do for the community. Elroy the Elk and Lodge members were on hand to ensure everyone had a great time.

The Elks National Foundation awards $2,000 Promise Grants to the first 500 Lodges that pledge to host an event that helps build the character and competence of local youth. To find out more about Promise Grants and the Community Investments Program, visit
