On April 11 the Tucumcari Elks Lodge #1172 made a number of donations to youth groups in Quay County. The lodge donated $2000 to the Tucumcari High School Family, Careers and Community Leaders of America organization. The group is raising funds for national competition to be held this summer in Anaheim, Calif. The lodge also donated $1,200 to the 4-H Wranglers association and $1000 to the Tucumcari Youth Soccer League to fund the Challenger Sports British Soccer Camp, which will be held in Tucumcari June 6-10. The lodge donated $250 to the Tucumcari High class of 2010 for helping serve meals at a recent Elks Lodge banquet and $170 to the Student of the Month and Student of the Year program, which will be used for a banquet to honor nominated students, their parents and Tucumcari High administrators. Thank you.
