The Dalles Elks’ Hoop Shoot Free Throw Contest will be held on Sunday, December 17th at The Dal-les Middle School Gym, 1100 East 12th Street, The Dalles. This annual event is free and open to all children living in Wasco and Sherman Counties whose ages will be between 8 and 13 years as of April 1, 2018. Qualifying winners in each of the six categories will be eligible to go on to the District Finals in Hermiston.

Last year we had 2 winners go on to Regionals and one of those (Jason Hull) moved up to the National competition. He placed 12th out of 72 in his class.

The Elks Hoop Shoot is the largest non-commercial, co-educational sports program in Ameri-ca. Winners of the District competition will have the opportunity to advance to compete at the State, Regional, and National level. National Champions are enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame.

Help is needed for several positions. Contact the lodge to sign up.


HELP IF YOU CAN!!

Hello Everyone,


The DVA is seeking drivers to assist in helping our local veterans get to doctor appointments and other services in the Portland area. They are looking for local drivers to drive the DVA vehicle from the veterans home here in The Dalles to the VA hospital in Portland. If you or someone you know would like to help, please call 503-272-5042. They will require a valid driver’s license, clean driving record, liability insurance, a back ground check and pass VA health screen/physical.

I’m hoping we can get a few volunteers from our lodge to help with this very worthwhile project.

Thank you for your support of our veterans, and remember “Elks never forget our Veterans”

Fraternally yours,
Mark Riter, ENVSC chair.

The three days Elk's dedication ceremonies came to a close yesterday, when the hundreds of visiting Elks returned to their homes. The occasion was one of the greatest events in the Dalles history, fully 1,000 of the antlered herd being in attendance. Everything in connection with the dedication progressed with marked preciseness, and the various committees on arrangements deserve the highest praise for the thoroughness of their work. Nothing was overlooked and all the visitors were splendidly cared for during their stay in The Dalles. Many visitors voiced their compliments in regard to The Dalles and the manner in which the big dedication was handled.

The Portland Elks, who came here Saturday for the dedication of the new Elks home, Kidnapped Chief of Police R.R. McDonald when they started for home Sunday afternoon and took the local official to Portland with them. He returned to The Dalles at noon today, none the worse for the wear and entirely satisfied.
