LYONS Lyons Elks Lodge No. 869 will participate in the nationwide Deer Hide Collection Program.
For free program, the lodge will collect deer hides and provide for their processing and tanning. The finished hides will then be sold with proceeds to fund a variety of veterans programs including in-patient and out-patient therapy program activities at the Canandaigua VA Hospital. Those who donate a hide will receive a certificate indicating a charitable donation was made in the amount of $35.
To donate hides, contact lodge secretary Rick Wunder at 946-4844. To arrange for hide or certificate pickup, contact George Wunder at (315) 576-4936.
