Princeton Elks celebrates 50th year distributing Christmas baskets

PRINCETON — The Princeton Elks Lodge started doing Christmas baskets for the poor in Bureau County 50 years ago. The first year, the ladies redressed dolls. and the men fixed trucks and other “gently used toys.” The lodge filled 12 baskets and took a toy to each family. The lodge members donated a dozen bushel baskets and enough money to fill the baskets with all the food needed for a Christmas dinner.
