Come out and play!! Thank you to the ladies who have stepped up to join a team or to help out as needed!!! At this time, we are in need of ladies to help out or to substitute occasion-ally! The 3 rotations are for 1 month/4 times per year for our Bingo sessions every Tuesday at 3:45 and 5:45. We will teach you and mentor you along the way. If you’d like to help the hours are 2:00 to 3:45pm for the early bingo or 5-9pm for late bingo. It’s easy and lots of fun to help – so contact Elsie, Marianne or any of the Bingo crew if you’d like to join us. Remember, this is our biggest fundraiser and we need the membership to support this effort!! These Bingo sessions are open to the public (they just have to sign in) – so invite all your friends!!

My choice for Lady Elk of the month for the month of January is Carla Dollinger. Carla can be depended on to bake when asked, to cook when asked and to do wonderful art work when asked. Carla was helping with our Family Services Committee and has now accepted the Chair of that committee. Our Family Services makes sure our schools (including Mapleton schools) have adequate shoes, socks, coats and necessary items for the children. So if you see a petite lady walking very fast with a pony tail swinging, that's our Carla. Please congratulate her when you see her.

Touch of Home: We sent a shipment to Ron & Sue James’ grandson. Thanks go out to the LOE, the Quilt Guild and Rolling Elks who made the 370 dozen cookies we sent!! If you know of a service man or woman who will be deployed in the fall let Marianne know as we would like to plan our next shipment for October.
Our ladies of Elks mailed 12 packages to Jane & Gary Hensen’s son-in-law, Nick, who is deployed to the Middle East. It took less than a week for them to arrive. His troops really appreciated receiving the 366 dozen cookies and items from their wish list. They had requested headlamps and they’re wearing them while eating cookies in the pictures they sent. It’s fun to know that they are enjoying the cookies and all of the goodies . We thank them for their service We thank all of you who donated cookies, those who helped shop and those who helped with the packing and mailing
