Thanks to the Elks' 64-year commitment, hundreds of thousands of children have been treated at the Elks Children's Eye Clinic at OHSU. Since 1949, the Elks Children's Eye Clinic at OHSU's Casey Eye Institute has been dedicated to making children's vision their top priority.

Elks member Vesta is presenting a check to Julie for Divide Camp. Divide Camp is a place where warriors experience the healing power of nature, in the company of people who have a heart for service. They are not rushed. They are not pushed. They are not proselytized or therapized. They are simply cared for (and about) in an evnironment where God alone heals. The soul may not be really"visible" but the transformation of the soul is recognizable and spending time at Divide Camp is CPR fot the soul. Our hope is that they find a measure of peace that was missing. http://dividecamp.org/
