Marysville Elks recognize the Graduation Seniors in the Antlers

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.
