SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – Springfield Elks Lodge held their annual awards night and Spring Fling with Exalted Ruler Vicki Siliski honoring her top Elk and Officer of the Year awards.
The Robert McGoldrick “Elk of the Year” award was presented to Jason Hurd. Mr. Hurd spends countless hours in the Lodge kitchen preparing dinners that the Lodge puts on. He also over sees a couple gun raffles each year to raise money to send local youths to Conservation Camp. Inner Guard Kathi Williams was selected by Exalted Ruler Vicki Siliski as the Robert Goodrich “Officer of the Year” for 2016. Again, Williams earned this by being the 50/50 lady of Springfield Elks Lodge by overseeing raffles for the upkeep of the Lodge while also being a fine dependable officer. Williams was also selected to receive the “Pot Stirrer” award given annually for people who make things happen around the Lodge.
A dinner of shepherd’s pie preceded the award night, also prepared by Jason Hurd
