Major Project Fundraiser Report

Members all,

It is with great pride and appreciation that you’re Major Project Committee has the privilege of reporting the results of Saturday, 9/22/2018 fund raising party.

Forty five members and non-members attended the party. We all were treated to a wonderful buffet prepared by our manager Judi, while Robin kept the bar hopping, a job well done to both of you.

We had a 50/50 raffle. We raffled off three baskets of booze and there was a silent auction going on all night. Many monetary gifts were also received. After dinner we were entertained by Brian Bosman who kept the audience in stitches.

After paying all expenses, it is our great pleasure to announce a check will be forwarded to the Michigan Elks Association’s Major Project in the amount of: $2,512.

 A special thanks to all who attended. A very special thank you goes out to the following in the Plymouth – Canton area for the most generous contributions to the success of the silent auction: The Canton Bistro, Aubree’s, P.F. Chang, Leo’s Coney Island, Longhorn Steak House, Belly Busters, Rose’s Restaurant, Cupcake’s, and Purgatory Cattle Farm.

Hey folks, if you’re going out anyway, please consider supporting the restaurants and businesses that willingly support us.


Lou Roos & John Truskowski, your Major Project co-chairs.

Special Needs Children’s Programs

Helping Michigan's Children

The Michigan Elks will assist any special needs child in Michigan, regardless of race, creed, or color, who is unable to obtain assistance from other agencies or organizations: whose family’s income will not allow them to give the child the needed treatment.

Special needs are defined as any handicap in a child that restricts his or her ability to function in a normal manner. The main objective of the program is to assist children from one month to 12 years of age; however, ages up to 18 years will be given consideration. Assistance is typically medical in nature rather than educational. The major goal is to help the child become a self-sufficient, healthy, contributing citizen.

On Saturday, January 17, 2015 the Flat Rock Elks #1731, in conjunction with the Downriver ARC, the Woodhaven – Brownstown School District and the Flat Rock School District, hosted a special day of basketball for learning disabled children and adults at the Woodhaven High School campus. The event was called “Warrior Games.” It boasted a special message: “Courage, above all things, is the first quality of a warrior.”

This event, like all others throughout the year, provides these individuals the ability to bond with others, compete in friendly competition, and allow them the ability to find self respect and self realization. It affords them the bonding experiences that so many need, but all too often never get.1
