Gateway Elks Lodge, with a partnership with the Alder School Sun Program, offered an afternoon of fun and games for over 80 students plus their families. With a grant from the Elks National Foundation the Gateway Elks Lodge offered the students an afternoon of fun that included lunch, face painting, a coloring station, three different game stations and culminated with a candy toss. All of this was under the watchful eye of the Jr Elks mascot from the Elks Children’s Eye Clinic at the Casey Eye Institute Casey the Elk.

The candy toss was divided up into age groups and the kids hunted for candy and coupons that the kids to exchange for books, toys, games, or stuffed animals. At the end of the event the families went home with backpacks with personal hygiene items for the whole family. Gateway Elks was glad the sun was out that everyone had a wonderful day. We look forward to partnering with the Alder School Sun program and thank all who helped out at the event.
