St Louis Elks Lodge #9 & The St Louis Elks Lodge #9 Veteran’s Service Committee is hosting our Kayak with a Vet 5 on Sunday September 8th at the Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park Tremayne Shelter from 11a-3p. There will be an opening ceremony from 11-11:30a. Mississippi River Water Trail members will be assisting with this event.
Team River Runner (TRR) is an independent, non-profit, national organization, that gives service members (veterans and active duty) and their families/friends an opportunity to find health, healing, and new challenges through paddling sports. We have adaptive equipment to assist participants with physical disabilities.
This event is free for any Veteran’s, Military Personnel, 1st Responders, and their immediate families to attend. We will have over “30” organizations to promote their services to those in need.
St Louis Elks Lodge #9 will also be promoting a few community programs: Veteran’s Leather Program (see website link below), Drug Awareness Program (website link below), Youth Americanism Essay Contest (website link below), & the Missouri Elks Association Mobile Dental Unit (website link below). The Mobile Dental Unit is an RV retro-fitted to provide dental services in rural areas throughout Missouri for no & low income citizens; including disabled individuals, and now including Veteran’s. It is required that participants pre-register for available dental services where planned events are scheduled to take place at.
