Cub Scouts Sponsorship
Currently the Telluride Elks is sponsors a Cub Scout pack with over 15 children. We pay for their charter and provide them access for Den meetings at the Lodge. The scouts do presentations at our Veterans and Memorial Day dinners and participate in other patriotic events including Flag Day ceremonies. We also sponsor their annual Pinewood Derby Championships in February, a really fun spectator sport for all.
Huck Finn – Becky Thatcher Day is held the 1st Saturday of June, rain or shine at the Telluride Town Park. The morning begins with horse drawn wagons riding up and down main street, Riding with Roudy. Hot dogs and Hamburgers are provided free for kids throughout the event, and prize winning categories for both boys and girls include longest fish, most fish caught, first fish caught, most determined, best costumes Huck Finn and Becky Thatcher, and even 1st to kiss a fish. The goal is to send every child home feeling like a winner.
