This is Phyllis Bucknell talking about my Clearwater Elks 499 again; we are really wonderful people, just ask me and I’ll tell you.
Elks Breakfast started again and we have our new grill and the same faces, but we work hard and always have a smile or a joke of some kind for you as we take your money and fill your tummy.
Wait for it, wait for it. Are you ready? On August 4 we are going to have our very first Clearwater Elks Food Bank Day Pancake Breakfast Day.
We will have a box for some perishables—it’s coffee, tea, soup, peanut butter and so on.
Any donation that day will also go to the Food Bank.
It’s a long weekend so we should have a very good turnout that day. Give hardy and bring your friends for breakfast because it’s going to a very good cause. I love giving back to our town.
This little bit is for you Bob, your flowers we planted in your honour are doing just beautiful in our Elks Memorial Garden.
Your names: Bob Perce, Leverne Burnell, Gary Rushton and Tony Breda will also be engraved on the planter. Your names will be placed around the flower pot, that way you won’t be alone. Finally watered those plants, rained June 2, good job.
Rugby boys, the Spartans, are in the Rugby finals, seems they need a little help so a donation of $500 was given to them by the Elks to help out with travelling expenses.
This will be a real accomplishment if they win the tournament and good for our town for having such talented boys.
Way to go.
We, the Elks 499, are still desperately looking for new members, so don’t be shy, come on down and join us. We won’t say no.
The Clearwater Elks 499 are just devastated by the horrible accident that happened, our hearts go out to the family.
Don’t forget our senior lunch on the second Tuesday of the month in July. I believe we go up to the Upper Clearwater. You can take the bus or drive there, your choice. See you there.
Welcome back Nancy.
Mark this day on your fridge: Aug. 4, Clearwater Pancake Food Bank Day
Bye for now and have a wonderful summer.
President Clearwater Elks 499
