Elks report successful but sad end of year

This is Phyllis talking about my favourite topic, the Clearwater Elks

Editor, The Times:

This is Phyllis talking about my favourite topic, the Clearwater Elks.  I apologize for not getting Christmas wishes to all of you in the paper. I hope your Christmas was great also your New Year great.

The Elks have wrapped up another year with a successful pancake breakfast, with a special thanks to the Royal Purple for their help.

We had our three-day bazaar in December. I think it was a real success. I would like to thank every one who participated. Special thanks to Moe Smith for donating some of Diane’s quilting pieces.  They were lovely and I felt she was with us. Also special thanks go to Shirley, Jenny and Vannie for their help at the bazaar.

Bingo is the second and fourth Thursday of the month, which means that for January it will be the 10th and the 24th. One more person I have to thank for all that she does for us is our dear Kelly.

It is with great sadness that our year ends with the passing of Past Exalted Ruler and very trusted member of the Elks, Leverne Burnell.  May you rest in peace, dear friend.

P.S. Our Vannie is moving to Kamloops. Bye little girl, we will miss you.
