As all of our members know this is our club's largest community service project of the year.  After a year of running fundraisers and events to build up our coffers, we get to give back to some of the less fortunate in our community.  Things kicked off early Wednesday morning at Five Below, picking up our ordered items and loading up the trucks to store gifts at a warehouse till our Saturday ELF Gift Distribution day.  Thursday night a group of Elves got together to set up our ELF Store at our rented hall.  Friday morning, our elves met the LTHS Interact Club at Walmart, to pick up gifts and complete some last minute shopping, mostly our larger ticketed items to be given away as part of our gift raffle.  After finalizing all our purchases at Walmart, we all went back to our ELF Store to stock the tables with gifts for parents to shop for gifts for their children.  Early Saturday morning, shoppers arrived at our store for their shopping appointments starting at 8:00 AM and by 2:00 PM nearly all of our gift tables were bare.  A project this size, doesn't take place in a few days, this is the culmination of months of preparation and meetings throughout the year.  Thank you to all our ELF club members, committee chairpersons, Elf Shoppers and ELF store workers for all your time efforts for this fantastic project.  Special thanks to everyone in the club and community for your donations, and services you provide for this event each year.
         Sunday's Annual Club Christmas Brunch was a great way to wrap up a busy week with some Christmas spirit for everyone.  Members children and grandchildren were kept busy doing some holiday crafts, playing reindeer games, and a Christmas sing-a-long led by Heather.  Even the big man in the red suit made an appearance, with some gifts for the kids.  Great job by our Brunch committee putting together a fun morning of good food, music and fellowship for members and their families.  Merry Christmas to All!
