The Auburn Area Recreation and Park District (ARD), was the recipient of a $2,338 donation from the Auburn Moose Lodge No. 2264. This donation will go to ARD’s Youth Assistance Fund. The fund provides scholarship opportunities for children, allowing them to participate in ARD programs, camps and lessons for little or no cost. Last year, ARD provided $18,512 worth of scholarships, a ARD press release said.
“We so appreciate the generosity of the members from the Moose Lodge in recognizing and addressing the needs of the children in our community. This donation will go a long way in providing swimming lessons, classes, programs and camps for the kids,” said ARD Recreation Services Manager Sheryl Petersen.
The Moose received the money from an Oct. 6 golf tournament.
“This was the Moose Lodge’s 13th annual golf tournament, and thank you everyone who made it a great success,” said Moose member Mark Swehla. “Thank you for all who donated their time as well as the sponsors; for without you we could not have done it, we look forward to next year.”
