We are so excited to report that once again, Covington Elks Lodge 1806 is the proud recipient of the
2016 Impact Grant.  This grant was submitted earlier this summer by Grant chairman Anita Denny to the Elks National Foundation in an attempt to complete a project close to the hearts of many of our Elks brothers and sisters.... the opening of an ECHO Children's Literacy Center in the heart of Porterdale.  ECHO stands for "Elks in the Community Helping Others".      This project will serve the children in Porterdale, on Saturdays from 10-2pm, during their summer break.  Please take a moment to read below (published today by the Elks National Foundation via email) what this project will entail: 

Covington, Ga., Lodge No. 1806 will provide reading and learning tools for children in need while they are on summer break through the ECHO Children’s Center project. The Lodge will create a children center space at a local church to run a weekly reading literacy program throughout the summer. The program will include crafts, educational activities and healthy lunches and snacks to all participants.

This is the second time that our Covington Elks Lodge has submitted and received the Impact Grant.  The Impact Grant was used previously (in 2014) to provide canned goods and other food items, as well as a new freezer to the Turner Lake Food Pantry.

Grand Lodge DD Jim Carpenter paid us a visit on 12-1-2015
