The Delta Elks Lodge hosted a "Noon Year's Eve Extravaganza" for youth on Sunday, Dec. 31. Crystal Herrera, the event coordinator, said the event was funded by The Beacon Grant, a grant for drug awareness. The party was a way for the Elks to give back to the community and spread drug awareness.

The party went from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and included many booths for children of all ages to win prizes, including a "petting zoo" with stuffed animals for children to take home. Elroy the Elk joined some children to dance, and later he attempted to do the limbo. At noon, 12 hours before the new year, bubble wrap was rolled out and all the kids were invited to make some noise!

At the end of the celebration Herrera and Elroy the Elk gave out goodie bags that read "Be Smart - Don't Start. Say NO to Drugs."
