COSHOCTON – Coshocton Elks Lodge 376 donated $8,400 to Echoing Hills Village on May 4. Lauren Unger, camp administrator accepted $400 of the money for camperships and Buddy Busch, president and CEO, accepted an $8,000 check for the village. The Ohio Elks state project is cerebral palsy and the Coshocton Elks has chosen to support this cause by donating to Echoing Hills. “They (the Elks) are truly a blessing to our campers and their families,” Busch said. “Camp is the one time a year they can get out and not feel different from others.” Unger said she greatly appreciates the donations and so do the campers. “What we get from the Elks makes a huge impact,” she said. The funds will help Echoing Hills provide scholarships to campers and cover the cost of putting camp on. Mike Wilson, exalted ruler at the Elks, said locally funds are raised for the cause through CP Coin Banks that members are given. “We are pretty fortunate that our members have bought into the project,” Wilson said. The Ohio Elks Association has donated to Echoing Hills for more than 30 years and its contributions are just over $400,000.

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home! I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
