December Events

All children and adult’s had a grand time with over 50 children and their families were on hand to enjoy time with "BUBBLES the Clown" who made fantastic balloons and put on an outstanding magic show for the kids. Every Child went home with a gift from Santa and a door prize along with a bag of goodies. John & Suzanne MacDonald provided a luncheon of which we say thank you. Thanks to all who assisted in setting up and helping during the party.

I also wish to thank all of the members who donated food for our needy family again this year. We were blessed with such generosity that we were able to assist two families this year. Both were most thankful to our club. I am proud of our club and it’s members for taking the time to help out others during this past holiday season. Thanks once again to Cory Russell for all her fine work that she put into the party. Also a thank you goes out to Cathie Rohloff and Eddie Sachs for helping raise money with our Children’ s Raffle this year. WAY TO GO TO ALL OF YOU!!
