The Prouty is an event of The Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center, an organization wholly devoted to raising funds to support innovative cancer research and important patient services at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center. The Prouty is now a collection of cancer fundraising events that packs into two days with a number of ways to participate!
This year the Lebanon Elks Lodge participated in the annual Prouty. Lodge members hiked the hilly and wooded trail through the Oak Hill and Storr's Pond area in Hanover, N. H. , helped with parking, and helped with the food services. It rained during most of the event, but this didn't dampen their spirits. There were refreshments along the way, and the Prouty organizatiion provided lots of warm food and drink after the completion of the hike.
Lebanon Elks Lodge 2099 raised almost $1,900 for this worthy cause.
