Massapequa Elks Lodge gave a $1000.00 scholarship to a graduating senior at the Massapequa High School. Funds were raised by Elk members Tom and Kathy Harringon, at a Golf Outing held in August. In addition two other scholarship was given out for $250 each by our drug awareness committe to two graduating students from the SADD Club. These students have gone above and beyond in preventing and educating the community on the dangers of drug addiction. The SADD club has partnered with the Elks Drug Awareness Chair, Margaret Motis, MTA and Yes Communtiy Counsel to reach out to parents in our community during Safe Halloween, and in the classrooms during Red Ribbon Week in October. The Massapequa Elks donated Drug Awareness coloring book, and bookmarks for these events. The Drug awareness committe raised money for this purpose during their Halloween Party and the Elks Holiday fair.
