The Marysville Elks recently recognized the graduating Seniors in the Antlers program. Three of the students have been members of the group since the Antlers was founded 6 years ago. Three of the students received $250 scholarships from the Elks in recognition of their accomplishments in the Antlers.
The Antlers are a service organization sponsored by the Elks. This year the group held many drug free events (dances/movie nights) where admission was obtained by bringing items such as cereal, hamburger helper or peanut butter for the food pantry. They also hosted a spaghetti dinner to raise money to purchase a “little red wagon” for Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Altogether, the students donated over 10,000 hours of service to the Marysville Community.
The Antlers are a youth group open to all students in the 7th to 12th grades. The group meets on the 3rd Wednesday of the month (September to May) at 7 pm at the Elks Lodge, 125 E. 5th Street.
