On Friday, May 22, Buckeye Y Youth presented awards to members at the Van Wert County Fairgrounds.

Youths reaching tenure at 5, 7 and 10 years received an award, while participants of summer camp, the Autumn Adventure Sleepover, Christmas caroling, Valentines for Veterans, chocolate sale and volunteer service received emblems commemorating the activities.

Those selling the most chocolate receive prizes for being the top sellers of Buckeye Y’s “World’s Finest Chocolate” sale. All who sold chocolate were entered in a drawing for $5 cash awards and $5 off coupons donated by Fricker’s of Van Wert.

All those attending received coupons donated by Taco Bell of Van Wert. Pizzas were also donated for the event by Pizza Hut and Little Caesar’s of Van Wert.

Buckeye Y Youth Inc. is a United Way agency and a Van Wert County Foundation grant recipient.
