Marysville Elks Lodge #1130 received a $750 Community Service Grant from the Ohio Elks Association. This year we purchased a remote area Lighting System for the Liberty Township Fire Department. Fire Chief Segner says that having this light will be useful at either a fire incident or an injury accident when they need to illuminate an area. This will enable them to better see what they are doing and because it is battery operated, the firemen won’t have to shout over the sound of their gas powered light.
The purpose of the Community Service grant is to aid in “the acquisition of equipment by a municipality, police department, fire department, etc., which they would not otherwise be able to purchase, thus allowing them to do their jobs better.” To date, through the Community Service Grants, Marysville Lodge #1130 has distributed nearly $7,000 back into Union County to assist various community agencies.
