Elks get ready for fall season

Saturday breakfasts at the Farmers Market are just about over and I am sure they are all thinking, “Thank goodness"

Editor, The Times:

Hi Clearwaterites, how are you doing? I hope all is well in your home. This is Phyllis chatting about my Clearwater Elks again.

Sept. 9 we held our first meeting of the fall and a very nice meeting it was. It was nice to see everyone and to talk over our accomplishments. Saturday breakfasts at the Farmers Market are just about over and I am sure they are all thinking, “Thank goodness.” It is a very rewarding job but it is hard work too. To the Breakfast Club, congratulations, job well done. Thank you to the extra help and supporters.

The flowers around the Elks Hall are pretty well finished. Those pretty flowers in the pots are just beautiful and they are still growing.

Earl and Lorraine look after the grounds and they have added three younger workers. These boys are so appreciated. Your parents must be very proud of you (I know I am – one of the boys is my great grandson). Names of these boys will appear later on. Thank you, boys.

The Lions have started Bingo again, thank goodness. People were getting a little antsy with only two bingos a month – not enough if you are a bingo player. The Lions Bingo is the first and third Tuesday of the month. The Elks Bingo is the second and fourth Thursday. Doors open at 5 p.m. for the Lions and the Elks bingos. Everyone is welcome.

Plans are underway for our December Bazaar. It will be on Dec 7, 8 and 9. You can be at the hall all three days or only one day or two days – your choice. The charge will be $10 per table per day. Look for more details at a later date. I look forward to seeing every one again. Clearwater has a very talented group of people.

Oh oh, I almost forgot that four-letter word is coming up (Xmas). If your home is too small for everyone, why not rent the Elks Hall? Phone 250-674-3456 for more information.

Until next time, take care and be happy.

Phyllis Bucknell
