The Elks Lodge 483 found a new way to help the children and youth in Montgomery County. Last week they donated $2,500 to Nourish, a program of the Youth Service Bureau. This donation is given to support an extension of Nourish, a summer program where they can continue to serve youth when school is out. 
Cathy Kruse, Nourish Program Manager, stated,” We have had concerns about how to meet the needs of food insecure children during the summer months when they are not in school. The Elks along with corporate supporters are allowing us to create a new program for the summer so that we can get food in the hands of children who are most in need. “The Elks wrote a grant to their national organization and received $2,500 to be able to support this effort. Although program details are still being worked out, Nourish is now reaching out to bridge the summer gap for food insecure children. 
“The Elks have been so generous and supportive of the Youth Service Bureau, with donations for the JUMP mentoring program, REINdear and now Nourish. Their caring and generous giving has had such an impact on our children and youth,” stated Karen Branch YSB Executive Director. 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has cited security concerns and asked President Donald Trump to reschedule his State of the Union speech scheduled for Jan. 29, or deliver it in writing. Pelosi said the government shutdown is to blame, and of course Trump is to blame for the shutdown. Some in her own party have said this is no more than petty politics. What say you?
