For the second year in a row, the Maryville Elks Lodge donated $2,500 to the Maryville Young Players through the Elks Beacon Grant. According to information from the lodge, these funds are used in two parts. About $1,500 of the money goes to feed MYP actors on their rehearsal night, Thursday, June 13. The Elks and 20 volunteers will cook, set up, serve and tear down all the tables and chairs at the dinner. Then $1,000 will be donated to the Maryville Young Players. Shown at the donation from left are Doug Meyer, Elks exalted ruler; Tye Parson, with MYP; and John Nelson, Elks leading knight.
