The contest for the Northeast District Hoop Shoot will be held at the new Newton County High School Gym on Saturday, January 25th, from 8 a.m. to 1. Jack will be asking for help with ball chasers, referees, score keepers, monitors, etc. Please step up and help out the youth who are participating in this project. This is such a rewarding project, to see the smiles on the faces of the winners in these different age groups. Also, having both girls and boys competing is a good thing. Elks from this district will be attending and watching their representatives. Come out, sit in the stands and enjoy a fun afternoon.

Dear Jack:

On behalf of the Elks National Foundation, let me congratulate the Covington Elks Lodge on being a 2014 Impact Grant recipient! This year, we received 146 grant applications and selected 47 Lodges to receive an Impact Grant award of up to $10,000.

Your Lodge will receive a 2014 grant award of $10,000.00 to support the project: Elks Care - Food Pantry.

The Covington Impact Grant project proves that your Lodge is committed to doing big things to benefit your community. Now, your Lodge can do even more to help others, while promoting your Lodge and the Elks.

Throughout the grant cycle, our Programs Associate Mary Morgan will be right there with you to lend support and to ensure your project stays on track. She is an outstanding resource and is only an email or phone call away. You can reach us at ENFPrograms@elks.org or 773/755-4730, whenever you have a question.

You should expect to receive your official award letter, along with the grant assurances by November 15, 2013. Once all paperwork is complete, your Lodge will receive its Impact Grant check in time to begin the project on January 1, 2014.

Again, congratulations. We are proud to be your partner in building a stronger Covington.

Sincerely,

Debbie Kahler Doles
Assistant Director
Elks National Foundation
