GREENVILLE — Greenville Fraternal Order of Eagles Lodge 2177 presented money to four organizations Tuesday evening.
Five thousand dollars each was presented to the Friends of Bears Mill, The Annie Oakley Festival and to the Greenville Boys and Girls Cub, while $1,500 was presented to Empowering Darke County Youth.
Handing out the money were Eagles representatives, President Rick Robinson, Steve Fowble and Craig “Cheese” Thompson.
Accepting on behalf of each organization were: Kim Rudnik, outreach director and Gordon Smith, treasurer of the Friends of Bears Mill; Annie Oakley Festival Chair Jo Ellen Melling and 2019 Miss Annie Oakley Madison Werner; Tom Jenkins for the Boys and Girls Club; and Program Coordinator Kay Sloat for the Empowering Darke County Youth.
It was noted by Eagles President Robinson that the funds that made these donations a reality came from charitable bingo at the lodge.
“We’re always accepting new membership,” Robinson said. “We’re a family organization that gives back to the community. We have a lot of events going on.”
He said dues are $30 annually, while it’s $40 for new members.
