AUGUSTA – Lewiston Emblem Club 528 received awards in the areas of Americanism, community service and public relations at the Maine Association of Emblem Clubs annual State Convention on June 5 and 6 at the Augusta Elks Lodge.

The event was attended by more than 150 members and guests from across the state and New England, including the eight Emblem Clubs in Maine.

Representing the Lewiston Emblem Club was President Kathleen Cotterly, who received the awards on the club’s behalf.

The club received second place in the state for its work in the area of Americanism. The club had been active in promoting the principle through its work on Flag Day, replacement of worn flags on the graves of veterans at Mt. Hope Cemetery and for other donations. In addition, the club received recognition for its community service and support of local charities such as the Abused Woman’s Advocacy Project in Auburn.

The club is affiliated with the Lewiston Lodge of Elks 371 and supports the community through programs such as Americanism, literacy, drug awareness and charitable donations. The club is always looking for new members. If interested, contact Cotterly at 998-2282 for more information.
