[October 26, 2012]  Lincoln Elks Lodge 914 presented Andi Hake, executive director of the Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce, with a $500 check for a program that provided free balloon rides for veterans at the 2012 Lincoln Art & Balloon Festival

Hake and her staff worked with George Lacefield, chairman of the veterans committee for the Elks, to organize the free balloon rides. More than 50 veterans picked up the passes from the Elks Lodge. Passes also included free admission to the festival for the weekend and one tethered balloon ride, either Friday or Saturday evening.

"We hope to partner with the Elks again next year to offer free rides and admission to the festival," said Hake. "We felt like this was a good way to honor the men and women that have sacrificed so much for our country, and we are happy to be able to do (this) in partnership with the Elks Lodge."

The check was presented to Hake by Floyd Schmidt, an Elks board member, pictured above with Hake.
