The Elks Christmas party for 114 angels was a great success. No surprise there with so many elves helping! Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus were wonderful and jolly. They checked their list to make sure all the children were on their good list….and they all were! The kids were so excited to see and talk with Santa – Thank you, Art and Cynthia Landrigan. Bob Pantea and his puppeteers were a great hit telling the story of the Christmas Spider. The puppeteers were Bob Pantea, Carol Bishop, Beth Cunningham, Donna McDermott and Tom Cole. Each child received a Christmas Spider with the story. Now they will have a spider on their tree at home. The spiders were made by Diane Boles, Paulette Walker, Marlys Lee and donated by Dano and Mary Anderson.
The cookies and punch were delicious and so cute, there were none left! Thank you elf bakers. And last, thank you to all the elves who helped at the party, Dano Anderson, Diane Boles, Jo Matlock Estelle Howitt, Carol and Ben Yospur, Carol Pantea, Shirley Dunham, Brian and Patrick Talley, Doug and Dotty Fairchild, Dana Todd, Gary and Julie Wright and Don and Wanda Rector, we could not have done this without you.
