For as long as most residents can remember the St. Maries Elks Lodge has distributed food and gifts each Christmas season to area residents in need.

This year is no different.

And for nearly as long, members of the Elks Lodge have sponsored fundraisers to augment the multitude of generous donations provided by area businesses and individuals.

A favorite fundraiser is Saturday’s annual Elks Turkey Bingo. Hundreds of people turn out to play bingo, and visit with their friends and neighbors while taking a chance at winning a turkey for their holiday meal. For just 25¢ each card it’s an entertainment bargain.

The games start at noon at the St. Maries Elks Lodge and continue until 5PM. Concessions will be available and turkeys abundant.
