Clearwater Elks Club present a report

The bazaar was well attended and I hope every one was satisfied and happy

Editor, The Times:

Best wishes to the wonderful people of Clearwater and surrounding areas. I hope you had a Merry Christmas and I wish you a Happy New Year.

By the looks of the weather, I guess winter is here in full force. This is Phyllis Bucknell talking about my Clearwater Elks 499.

Our Xmas Bazaar is over with 24 tables of, let me see, just pure talent. The bazaar was well attended and I hope every one was satisfied and happy. Thank you to all the people who had tables and to Wells Grey Riders Association for running the concession. Shirley and I are very grateful. Great job girls.

When I came home from shopping from the bazaar my little dog, Jake (a Japanese Chin), looked at me as if to say, “Got anything for me?” and I realized that no one had pet things – maybe next year, Jake. Something to think about – pet coats, hats, mitts and so on.

Our auxiliary ramp is finished so getting in and out of the hall will be much easier and safer.

This is the fourth year the Elks have provided a needy family with a Xmas gift to help them through the holidays. Have a Merry Christmas

The Elks Hall is still open for Christmas party bookings if your family is getting too big for your home.

The Elks Club has camp for kids. Three of these camps are in B.C.: Denman Islands, Camp Aldergrove and Camp Elk Canoe near Salmon Arm. I am going to get more information and will send it to groups, Cubs, Scouts, Girl Guides, and hockey clubs. If you think you would like to go to these camps, phone 604-513-0155 or email to bcelks@shawcable.com. We have a month or two to think of this. I’ll get back to you on this project.
