Michael F. Zellen, the national leader of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, will visit the New Hampshire State Elks and their lodges on Sept. 28.

Zellen and his wife, Donna, will stop at Keene Lodge 927 for a 1 p.m. luncheon and then travel to Derry/Salem Elks Lodge 2226 for an official reception dinner in his honor.

On Sept. 29, the grand exalted ruler and his wife will tour the New Hampshire Elks' major project, the Copper Cannon Camp for underprivileged children in Franconia. The camp will provide a luncheon for the Zellens as part of the tour.

Nashua Elks Exalted Ruler Trent E. Michalewicz will head a large delegation of Nashua Elks and their spouses planning to attend the reception dinner at the Derry/Salem Elks Lodge to meet and greet their national leader and hear his program for the 2016-17 lodge years.

The Nashua Elks and other New Hampshire Elks will also make donations that night to the Elks National Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Order of Elks, which has budgeted more than $30 million for scholarships, veterans, youth programs, the needy and underprivileged, and community programs such as the Nashua Soup Kitchen & Shelter.

The Soup Kitchen alone has received $47,500 in grants over the last five years, as well as the Elks Hoop Shoot and the Elks Soccer Shoot contests.

New Hampshire Elks have made donations to the Elks National Foundation at this annual state visitation dinner in honor of the grand exalted ruler ob about $17,000 per visit. This is in addition to thousands of dollars donated by New Hampshire Elks throughout the year.
