Separately, Streator Elks held its first monthly bowling session in fall 2016 for the Life Skills and Transition class from Streator High School, in which they open the lodge bowling alley and serve pizza to this group. Also in November, the lodge held its eighth Chili Cook Off in conjunction of a funday Sunday of watching the Chicago Bears. Later that month, Streator Elks were host to a dinner for veterans from the Illinois Veterans Home in LaSalle and all veterans who also are Streator Elks. To complete November, Streator Elks again sponsored a special event for Relay for Life in memory of PER David Hallowell.
