ENF AND LAKELAND LODGE SCHOLARSHIPS -2019

ENF AND LAKELAND LODGE SCHOLARSHIPS

Update: The date for submitting applications has passed. Selection is now taking place. Good luck to all.

Both the Elks National Foundation’s and our local Lodge1291’s Scholarship Programs are underway. To access both of these programs, high school seniors should contact their school ’ s guidance counselors and work with the guidance staff in  completing their applications for the 2019 Most Valuable Student  (MVS) Scholarship Program.

All applications are to be completed online by accessing them at enf.elks.org/mvs. Within the body of the application,  students can select which of the five (5) closest lodges to their home address they want to receive their applications. PLEASE INFORM ANY STUDENTS YOU KNOW, ESPECIALLY THOSE IN YOUR FAMILY, TO DESIGNATE LAKELAND LODGE 1291 TO RECEIVE THEIR APPLICATIONS. The deadline for making application to the MVS Program is November 15, 2018.

LEGACY AWARDS

If any member of Lakeland Lodge 1291 has a child or grandchild who is a high school senior planning to attend a college or university next year (2019), please have them complete a MVS application as explained above. I am also asking that you let me know that your child or grandchild is applying by dropping me an email at djnorwine@gmail.com. If your child or  grandchild attends a high school outside the Lakeland area, please let me know that as well because special provisions need to be made to get a  “hard copy” of their application to our local Scholarship Committee for consideration. In addition, children and grandchildren of active Lakeland Lodge members can also apply directly to the Elks National Foundation (ENF) for a Legacy Award. THIS IS SEPARATE FROM AND IN ADDITION TO THE MVS PROGRAM AND OUR LOCAL LODGE’S PROGRAM. Legacy applications are also done online at enf.elks.org/leg and the deadline for Legacy applications is February 1, 2019 at 11:59 a.m. Central Time.

As our Lodge’s Scholarship Chairperson, I am very willing to discuss the various Elk Scholarship Programs with any of our members and answer any questions you might have. Again, my email address is djnorwine@gmail.com

Senior Orphans this years Gratitude Grant recipient

We are pleased to announce that this year our Lakeland Elks Lodge 1291 has been given the Gratitude Grant. This Grant will be given to this year’s recipient—Senior Orphans of Polk County Florida. This is an organization that was founded over 25 years ago to assist those less fortunate. They provide to the neediest of seniors—those on a fixed income of no more than $600.00 a month!! They are faced with the choice of eating or buying much needed medications on a daily basis. As our Elks Lodge always does—we hope, with YOUR help, to do our best to add to this grant. For the entire month of August 2018, our lodge will be holding a drive for additional items and funds to assist them. Please, bring your donations to the lodge—that’s all you’ll need to do.

Our goal is to add an additional $500.00, be it in supplies or cash donations, to the Grant Funds.

Are you ready for a new dart season?!?!?!

We are having an organizational meeting on Thursday, August 2 at 6:30, be there or be square! If you can not attend and want to play please let me know. We are not sure when the season will actually begin, it depends on the number of teams and divisions. We will know more at the meeting after we get a team count.
You do not have to have a partner to attend, we will do our best to get partners for any players!
The dues are $60.00 per team member and can be paid to me or put on your tab with Christy.
If you have suggestions for the new season please let me or Phil know before the meeting.
Please share with anyone who you know that may want to play this season. We normally end the season the week before Thanksgiving.
Thanks to Joe for running a great summer league of blind draw! I am sure he would love for folks to stay after the meeting and play on the 2nd!
Hope to see everyone August 2 at 6:30!
