Watertown Elks Lodge Donates To Local Backpack Program
On January 24, 2017, the Watertown Elks Lodge donated approximately $1,000 worth of food items to the Watertown City School District's "Backpack Program". The food items included: 17 boxes of Kraft Mac & Cheese Dinner(each box containing 18 individual boxes), 19 packages of Bumblebee Tuna (each package containing 8 cans), numerous cases of canned vegetables, and other food items. In the photo above with some of the donated items are: from Left to right - Patti LaBarr, Assistant Superintendent for Instruction; Exalted Ruler, Jan Laribee, and PER Ray Cooley.
Backpack food programs provide nutritious, non-perishable, easy-to-prepare food to children to ensure they get enough food on weekends and holidays when they can't depend on school meals to avoid hunger. By donating to this wonderful program, our members once again show that "Elks Care ~ Elks Share."
Monthly Drawing - Part 2
Beginning Februaty 1, the Lodge started a monthly drawing for $1,000. The donation is $10. ONLY 200 TICKETS WILL BE SOLD EACH MONTH. Tickets are sold at the bar. The drawing will be held at the last day of the month. Proceeds will benefit Lodge improvements.
Why Part 2?
The first 200 tickets sold out immediately. Many of our members were disappointed they weren't able to participate. So it was decided to hold a second drawing. Same rules apply. Click here to see the poster. Good Luck!
Charity Of The Month
Pinning Down Cancer
The "Charity of the Month" for February is "Pinning Down Cancer". This is a fundraiser started by two young girls in memory of their sister who died from a rare form of cancer. They are requesting spring clip clothespins, glue sticks for the small glue guns and gift cards to Michael's as this is where they purchase most of their supplies. Please donate to this worthy cause.
