The Putnam Lodge recently celebrated Youth Week with a car seat clinic at Muddy Brook FD’s Safety day, and a Bike Rodeo at Putnam Elementary School.
We also  volunteered at SAFEKIDS day in conjunction with CCMC with 22 Elks around the State, by hosting a booth to teach children about Safety in many situations such as when swimming, being at home alone, stranger danger and Fire and vehicle safety.
Wednesday, May 29th from 4:30 – 6:30 we will host a Community Services Fair/Family Fun Expo event at the Lodge with IHSP, WIC, Nurturing Families, Family Resource Center, Access agency, Diaper Bank and other local community agencies.
Parents will have the opportunity to learn about the resources in our area. There will be door prizes related to the needs of growing families, such
As Crock pots & cookbooks, gift certificates for transportation, wellness and healthy food.
Busy Bags will be provided for the children with healthy snacks, bubbles, crayons, puzzles, toys, etc.
Putnam Antlers, our recently chartered Youth organization, will be doing facepainting.
Dinner will be cooked by our very own Buster Corey, Harold Charbonneau and Lisa Walker.
All this is being provided by a $2000 gratitude grant from the Elks National Foundation’s Community Investments Program.
Our Lodge typically is awarded over $6,000 per  year to put back into our community to fund items for the homeless, books for local school libraries,
Boots for school children, diapers ,personal care items, holiday meals, clothing and  supplies for children who are placed in foster homes unexpectedly.
Our goal is to improve the lives of families in our community and to lessen the burden on the strained resources of the agencies in our area.





LOVE THE PUTNAM ELKS!! Thank you again to the Putnam Elks for their
surprise visit in full regalia to the Good Friday Food Drive this morning.
In 2013, Past Exalted Ruler, Shawn Tessier, proposed that the
Lodge support the Rotary and Lions efforts, and show
solidarity between all the organizations who focus on
improving our community. This year the Lodge members donated
over 100 cans and boxes of food, as well as $439 in cash.
The Putnam Elks Wednesday Night Pitch League donated an
additional $1280 from the players and teams for a total
donation of $1,719. Pictured left to right: Past Exalted
Ruler and 4 year Trustee Shawn Tessier, Treasurer Tamara
