Martinsville 1752 participated in Bikers for Babies, an event to support the Pregnancy Care Center of Martinsville and Henry County, which included a bike run as well as included many vendors and community support groups, like the Elks.
The organization provided drug awareness materials to children and youth, which included silicone wrist bands reminding them to Be Happy. Be Brave. Be Drug Free. Members also provided red, white, and blue silicone bands to adults for our support of veterans and the military.
Elroy the Elk was available for pictures with the children – and yes it was 95 degrees with 80 percent humidity. Twenty children also were registered for the Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, funded in part by a Spotlight Grant.
