Clearwater Elks get ready for winter season

Our pancake breakfast has come to an end with another successful year behind us

Editor, The Times:

Hello to all the great people of Clearwater. This is Phyllis writing to you on behalf of Clearwater Elks 499. We hope all is well in your world.

Our pancake breakfast has come to an end with another successful year behind us. We had our regulars that have a sweet tooth. We met old friends and new friends from afar. A couple actually heard about us in London, England, from a friend of theirs who had our breakfast during their trip through Clearwater. Pretty good, hey.

We would like to thank the members of the Royal Purple who helped us every foot of the way, also Ralph and Tim. You were and are a great help.  Sidney and Debra, we really appreciated your help. If I missed anyone I apologize, you were greatly appreciated.

Safety Mart, thank you, you have been really great through the summer.

Best wishes to our supporters for their love of pancakes, syrup and bacon.

Thank you to the members of Wells Gray Community Forest for their grant. The auxiliary ramp is not quite finished yet. We still need a roof but John says it will be finished before snow falls. Better hurry up, John. The auxiliary ramp will make it much easier to get into and out of the Elks Hall.

The Elks Bazaar will be on Friday, Nov. 29, 5 p.m. – 8 p.m.; Saturday, Nov. 30, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.; and Sunday, Dec. 1, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. We have a lot of talented people in Clearwater, so folks, strut your stuff. Concession available.

Our Best Christmas Ever event is coming closer. If you know of a family that can use some help, phone me at 674-3535 and help us make their Xmas the Best Christmas Ever.

Christmas is just around the corner and the hall still has openings for Xmas and New Years get togethers.

Last but not least, I have to mention the people who broke into our hall. I figure you cost us about $1,000 – money that goes toward keeping our hall operating. We donate to cancer and a lot of other needy items. I noticed our first aid kit is gone. I’m trying to keep myself from wishing you got hurt, but I hope you are really proud of yourselves.

Until next time, the best wishes of health and happiness. Take care over winter and we’ll see you in May.

Phyllis Bucknell
