Evergreen, Colo., Lodge No. 2363
To start the New Year, Evergreen, Colo., Lodge No. 2363 resolved to inspire kids to love the great outdoors—a resolution the Lodge will surely keep given its track record with successful youth programs.
Last year, in conjunction with the Colorado Division of Wildlife, the Lodge used an Elks National Foundation Promise Grant to hold an outdoor skills day for local youth. Under a picturesque Colorado sky, Elks led a day of fishing, hiking and outdoor skills demonstrations. From planning the day to running the booths to serving lunch to all 120 kids in attendance, every aspect of this Elks’ event was a resounding success!
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 www.elks.org/enf/community.
