CRAIG — Craig’s Elks Lodge #1577 has recently bestowed funding to three worthy causes and gifted a flag to fly over a local bank.

The Interfaith Food Bank and Community Kitchen at St. Michael’s Church received $1,500. Veterans Affairs Officer Ed Wilkinson accepted $1,000 to help provide direct assistance to local veterans.

Finally, lodge members provided the Bank of the San Juans a new flag to replace an old, faded one at its Sixth Street location.
