Betty Volker chairs our Special Children's Committee and was assisted by many but key among them were Deni Heilman for planning and shopping, Kim DeVizio for running the kitchen and Paul "Santa" Staeger and his granddaughter head elf.
"We, as Elks, have continually taken a great deal of pride in talking about our Special Children’s Committee’s works. However deeds are always better than words therefore we must practice what we preach. We can do this best by seeing to it that any handicapped child needing help in any community in our state is cared for by the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. Our aim is to help them become self-sustaining and useful citizens so that in the future they may enjoy a happy and normal life."
On the other hand, maybe you interested in providing direct service to special children and making a difference in your community. We have 7 acres of property, a members-only lodge/bar, swimming pool and other facilities -- Consider joining the Elks! Start by contacting us at email@example.com.
