Members of Atchison Elks Lodge #647 recently awarded several law enforcement agencies with money to utilize for their respective drug awareness programs.
Exalted Ruler Katherine Kohler and Secretary Steve Brull, of the Elks, presented the money in mid-January to local law enforcement departments.
The money was raised from the Atchison Elks 28th Annual Drug Awareness Golf Tournament. The tournament took place Sept. 18, 2020 at the Atchison Golf Club at Bellevue. In addition to the golf tournament, the event featured a dinner, awards, silent and live auctions. Proceeds from the golf event funded the donations to the area law enforcement agencies to educate youth in the community with a focus on drug awareness.
