Their purpose is to help others, but the Drumheller Elks Club could use a bit of help themselves.
"Our membership is way down, but we're still active," reported Elks spokesman Blanche Cronk. "Most of our members are getting up in age and just can't do everything anymore, so we'd like to get some younger members."
"We meet once a month, the second Tuesday of the month: our meetings normally don't last more than an hour," she outlined. "We volunteer at the casino in Calgary once every three years and once a year we sell tickets for the Alberta Elks."
The Drumheller Elks just made a donation that will help kids with mobility issues.
Nikki Isley, whose young son Ethan suffers from Spina bifida, put out an appeal for a special needs shopping cart for Extra Foods in Drumheller.
Almost immediately, her prayers were answered by the Drumheller Elks.
"We were so happy that we could help her out and anyone else that can use it," stated Cronk. "We had one on hand: we had donated two before and we still had one."
There's also a Caroline's Cart, as they're known, at Freson Bros. Drumheller. The Elks supplied that one as well.
