Major Project - Copper Cannon
The mission of Copper Cannon Camp is to enrich the lives of under-served youth of New Hampshire by providing a quality, tuition-free camp experience. Copper Cannon Camp is unique in that it is the only completely tuition-free summer camp experience for children living in New Hampshire. Our founder, Hamilton Ford, overcame an underprivileged childhood and was changed by a summer camp experience he and his family had. He decided then and there that summer camp was something that every child, regardless of background or financial status, deserved to experience. And 50 years and 20,000 campers later, we uphold that same belief to this day. Our campers come from all over the state and are accepted regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, orientation or handicapping conditions. Our only requirements are that campers fall within the particular age group they are applying for, and that they meet the financial income requirements to receive the free camp experience.

Hello Fellow Elks, Just passing along information that you might not have. My friend Jim Strojny, Past State President of the Mass Elks Assoc has informed me that 2 brothers who were to be initiated into the next class of members of Stoneham Elks Lodge and their sponsor were severely injured in the Boston Bombings. The 2 brothers each had a leg amputated and the 3rd remains in critical condition. A fund has been set up through TD Bank to assist them. You can go to any TD Bank to make a donation. The fund name is: Marc, JP, and Paul, Marathon Victim Fund. The account # 8371871647. You can also mail a donation to: TD Bank, 280 Montvale Ave, Woburn, Ma 01801. Please help if you can and pass this message on to other Elks. God Bless all of the victims of this trajedy, and God Bless all of you!! Jim Foley, PDD (From Connecticut but now lives down south).
Attention all Lodges and State Elks Association Committee Chairs -
All NH Lodges - Reminder - Do you have money that needs to be turned into the Elks National Foundation? An online donation is instantaneous, but if you are mailing in donations, they need to get taken care now! Everything is done for this year at the end of the month. The longer it is put off, the better the chances that it will not get counted for this Lodge Year! Please do it now! We are doing excellent, but still have two Lodges that have not quite made their per capita. Let's get to 100 percent as we did last year! Thanks! NHSEA ENF Committee
To all Elks and Lodges in NH -
At the NH State Elks Meeting in Lebanon, NH today, a question was posed about New Hampshire State Elks Association Jackets.
Nothing has changed about availability. Apparently there is some confusion about how to get a NH State Elks Jacket.
Attention Lodge Secretaries,
A new category has been added to the Charitable Records Online Report for disaster relief.
"Natural Disaster Relief" has been added under the 15xx series lines under Community Service Progs. Line #1508
If you have any questions please contact Fred Mensch or their computer tech support. This was done at the request of one member of the Grand Lodge Government Relations Committee. He thought there should be a category for Lodges who participate in disaster relief, including fundraising or donations, in light of what happened in NY and NJ last fall with the hurricane. This category covers Lodge involvement with any type of disaster relief.
