Elks bonanza aids athletes

August 21, 2006

The motto of the Elks is "Elks Care, Elks Share" and they live by this creed.

Every year, Hagerstown Elks Lodge 378 holds a bonanza to raise money to provide athletic scholarships for Hagerstown Community College.

Again this year, the Elks Lodge was able to provide eight scholarships worth $500 each, for a total of $4,000.

The president of the Elks Lodge, Exalted Ruler Joe Barresi, is pictured presenting the check to Mona Adkins of HCC.

This is only a small portion of the money donated by the local Elks Lodge. Every year, the lodge budgets more than $100,000 for charitable contributions.
