Toledo Elks Lodge #1664 Exalted Ruler Darrin Turner (right) recently presented representatives from the Toledo Historical Museum, Jim Franklin (center) and Oop Johnson (left), with a check for $1000.00. The funds were provided by a Gratitude Grant issued to the Toledo Lodge from the Elks National Foundation. The Elks National Foundation provides grants to Lodges all across the United States to assist the Lodges in bettering their communities and community residents. These grants have been used for supplies for students, food baskets, drug-free events for kids, back-pack programs, sports equipment for local kids’ teams and so much more.
