Elks raise money for scholarships

Elks Lodge 2286 in Glenwood Springs sold Italian sausage and burgers during Strawberry Days, raising $5,300 for local scholarships. The fundraiser was supported by local businesses including Amerigas. Annually the Lodge awards $16,000 in scholarships to seniors from local high schools.

Megan Uren, our local recipient of the National Elks Legacy Scholarship ($1,000) also received a $2,000 scholarship from our local lodge. Past ER Lonnie Fischer is the proud grandfather of Megan.
