Elks Awards Day - 2016

2016 Youth Night on May 2, 2016, saw a crowd of around 500 people celebrate excellence in area juniors and seniors. About 235 juniors were recognized, and 37 scholarships were awarded to deserving seniors. All scholarships are funded through Lincoln Elks Lodge #80 Charitable Fund, Inc., many in the name of generous individual benefactors.

Also, one of our lodge's entrants into the ENF Most Valuable Student competition, Supriya Reddy, was awarded a $4,000 scholarship.

Many lodge members participated in the judging of the scholarship applications and in the Youth Night itself. The list is too lengthy, but they know who they are. Many thanks to all who worked to make it a success - it certainly takes teamwork!
