Elks end successful pancake breakfast season

We were able to help Clearwater Fire Department, Upper Clearwater fire crew and Canadian Legion 259

Editor, The Times:

Hello Clearwater people, it’s Phyllis writing to you from Clearwater Elks 499.

How are you doing? The last two Saturdays I thought I heard some rumbling around town – maybe because people are having to make their own Saturday breakfasts? I had toast. What a bummer.

Seriously, how are you keeping? Are you ready for winter? It sounds like winter is ready for us and might arrived early – lucky us.

Clearwater Elks had a very good breakfast season this year and already we were able to help the Clearwater Fire Department, the Upper Clearwater fire crew and the Canadian Legion 259.

I would like to thank the Clearwater Fire Department and the Royal Purple Elks for all their help with the pancake breakfasts. Thank you to the town of Clearwater and surrounding areas for your support, thanks also to the tourists for their support also.

All of you are totally awesome in enabling us to give back to our community, our Elks and Royal Purple Fund for children and our camp for kids and the Grand Lodge.

Our senior luncheons are still happening on the second Tuesday of the month. The speakers teach us how to cope and grow old gracefully. I think I have this covered, maybe not gracefully but I have getting old down pat.

Our senior workshop is a good way to get out for:

• Good soup

• Good buns

• Good desserts

• Good information on life’s ups and downs as we get older.

Good grief, don’t forget the second Tuesday of the month. See you at lunch. It’s free.

We have a good Bingo machine that needs a job. I know Bingo is going to the computer and online but there are still those that love Bingo so, if any group wants to try your hand at running a Bingo Night, phone me, Phyllis at 250-674-3535.

The Clearwater Elks Bazaar will be on Nov. 25 and 26, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. or maybe longer if we have a full house. Wouldn’t that be great.

In closing, I wish all of you a safe and healthy winter and a Merry Christmas.

Be safe. Be healthy. Be in time for breakfast starting May 2018.

I would like to congratulate Debbie Bailey for being our publicity director. Thank you.

Bye now.

Phyllis Bucknell
