The Ohio Elks Buckeye Bucks calendars are available behind the bar.They make for awesome Christmas gifts. Our lodge had three winners just last month.
Here’s the drill. You get 730 chances to win between $50 and $500. The best part is you don’t need to keep track of anything. If you are a winner the money is sent to your home automatically. They are only $20 and our lodge gets to keep $5 of that. The other money goes to the OEA for all of the great work they do. The number on the calendar (or card) is tied to the Ohio Lottery Pick 4 contest. If that number is selected, you are a winner! Be popular at Christmas time!
