Farmington Elks serve 550-plus at Farmers Market Corn Roast

What do corn, kids, vets, and scholarships have in common? The Farmington Elks, of course!

The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks prepared and served over 550 ears of fresh corn at the Farmington Farmers Market on August 7. Local farmers provided the corn, and the Farmington Elks’ volunteers roasted and served many local corn lovers.
