Inner Guard, CT Elks Association

On Sunday Oct 6th, Pete and Brenda took their CT Elks booth on the road, traveling to South Windsor to be a part of the town's Apple Festival. They spent several hours spreading the word to the attendies of the good works that the State Association does in their association with CCMCs Safe Kids program, and of the state's Drug Awareness program.
Along with help from State President Mike Bonini and State Chairman Justin Fedler PER, a great many people stopped by the booth to take pamphlets and listen to what we had to say. As always Brenda also had a table full of hats and mittens she knitted that were there for a donation.
Things really got going when Elroy showed up. He was a big hit with the kids and made for some great photos for the parents.
Our thanks to Mike and Justin,  to Tony and Deb Duarte, and a special thanks to Elroy and his handler (Chris and Diane Terry). Super special Thank You to Lisa Berthieume for Elroy.
