Fellow Noble Elks:
Each year the Elks National Foundation (ENF) sponsors a nation-wide program offering college scholarships to high school seniors. This year ENF is awarding almost $2.5 million to 500 successful applicants.
YOUR Escondido Lodge had 26 students apply to the program. To honor these students, the Escondido Board of Directors has invited them and their parents to a spaghetti dinner at 5PM on Saturday, March 27th. To demonstrate further support, each applicant will receive a check for $300 from the Lodge’s Vanguard (Ford Foundation) account.
This occasion presents a special opportunity to advertise the noble community service offered by the BPOE. We would like to give the parents and students a general overview of the Elks and specific insight regarding the good-will YOUR Lodge has provided. In this spirit, we are looking for volunteers to give a 10-minute Power-Point presentation to open these festivities.
Elks and their guests are also invited, and encouraged, to attend this spaghetti dinner YOUR Lodge on March 27th. Please call the Lodge office for reservations in order for us to plan for the correct number of persons.
Applauding you for your enthusiasm,
Lodge office: 760-745-1687
