Clark Fort Valley, Mont., Lodge No. 2757
With the right lighting and little stage make-up, Elks at Clark Fort Valley, Mont., Lodge No. 2757 helped local students put on a Broadway-worthy production. Using an ENF Gratitude Grant, the Elks helped produce Thompson Falls Elementary School’s rendition of “King Arthurs Quest.” With only a week to prepare, the students and the Elks pulled off a great performance, entertaining more than 400 captive audience members.
“The whole town was abuzz with excitement,” says Project Manager Connie Scott. “This week was magical for these kids and the community.”
The Elks National Foundation helps Lodges serve their communities by offering $2,000 Gratitude Grants.
