Fairview Heights Elks Lodge 664 received a $1,000 Veterans Grant from IEA President, Greg Verdun, to support the Boots on the Diamond event held October 4th at GCS Ballpark. This event hosted a round robin double elimination softball tournament for approximately 100 retired veterans, disabled veterans and active military. Our lodge used the grant funds to provide lunch for the veterans and active military who participated in this event. Remaining funds were used to purchase several lap blankets, socks, etc. for VA patients weekly physical therapy sessions. During the presentation of awards, we were proud to accept a certificate of appreciation for our continued support of veterans and active military in our community.
