Elks promote eye safety in schools

35

The Martinsville Elks Lodge #1752 recently donated 40 pair of safety glasses to Franklin County High School and 20 pair of safety glasses to Patrick County High School. Providing safety glasses to schools is one of the Virginia Elks Association’s State Major Projects. Shown wearing the glasses in class are Ashley Perkins (left), a senior at Franklin County High School who will study welding at Patrick Henry Community College this fall, and Jesse Hazard, a 10th grader at Patrick County High School.
