Clearwater Elks 499 make a report

Already we have begun making donations to our community

Editor, The Times:

This newsletter from Clearwater Elks 499 is to all of our wonderful friends and supporters of our pancake breakfasts, senior workshops, bazaars and hall rentals.

Our breakfasts started another season on the last Saturday in April and already we have begun making donations to our community: Clearwater Highway Rescue, Clearwater Fire Department, Blackpool Fire Department, Clearwater Soccer Association, and $1,000 to Cassidy Redman to help her achieve her goals in life. Good job, Cassidy. Keep up the good work.

Elks teddy bears were also handed out to said organizations except Cassidy. Did you want a teddy bear, Cassidy? If you do, phone me (Phyllis 250-674-3535).

I believe that no matter how old we are, male or female, we can secretly take comfort from a hug from a teddy bear. Elk teddy bears give a little extra squeeze, I think!

I would like to thank Clearwater Fire Department for their help getting set up and closing down every Saturday.

Thank you to Greffards for the help in making our Canada Day so enjoyable.

Thank you to the Royal Purple Elks for your help.

How are you doing, Doug? Feeling better I hope.

We, the Clearwater Elks 499, are so very proud of our town and grateful for your support. See you at breakfast.

Oh! Oh! We had a glitch – our griddle broke down. Thank you to Can-West for your PB help and donation making it possible for us to continue.
