Veterans, Elks teaming up to support Kimberling City K9 officers

On June 9, 2024, Veterans of the Ozarks and the Kimberling City Elks are teaming up to hold a fundraiser to support the Kimberling City K9 Police Officers, “Zesta” and “Sig.” The care and feeding of the Department’s two K9 officers is presently underfunded, with the K9 officers’ handlers footing the bill for food, veterinary care and other aspects of their well-being.


The planned fundraiser aligns with the goals of VOTO and the Elks in terms of community involvement, as both organizations are committed to seeing needs and finding ways to meet them, particularly needs involving those who have served or presently serve our country and keep our communities safe. “It is not uncommon to find that K9 officers in general are supported mainly by community donations in other areas,” said VOTO officers in a social media post. “Therefore, we are stepping up to assist in closing the budget gap to ensure our K9 officers receive their basic needs.”


This entertaining and worthwhile evening will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Elks Lodge, 37 Beach Blvd. in Kimberling City. Cost is just $300 for a table of eight. Activities will include the following:


·       A picnic-style chicken dinner

·       K9 Officer demonstration

·       Rounds of police/military movie trivia

·       Live and silent auctions

·       50/50 drawing


Space is limited to 15 tables, so get your trivia experts together, form a team, and make your reservations soon! For reservations or more information, call Dave “Mac” McAllister at 417-230-1283.
