On Wednesday, July 17th the Athens Elks Lodge #973 hosted it's 5th annual Community Family Fun Day at the Athens City swimming pool. This was made possible with an Elks National Foundation promise grant. Over 200 children and parents attended the event, in spite of it raining all day. Last year the attendance was over 900.
The Elks Lodge provided free swimming, food and soft drinks for all those attending. A Drug Awareness booth was set up where parents and children took home coloring books and materials, as well as cool DAP sunglasses and backpacks!
