Thank you for your help

To the Editor,

The Princeton Elks Lodge recently packed and delivered 120 food baskets. An endeavor this large takes a great deal of assistance.

Thanks to all who donated toys; with your donations we served nearly 400 kids. Thanks to our members for your monetary donations, that helped purchase over $5,000 worth of food that we delivered to 120 needy families in Bureau County. Thanks to all who helped collet hats, coats, scarfs and mittens.

Thanks to the many "elves" that helped in any way at the Lodge by packing baskets, bagging toys, setting up food or unloading the food truck.

A special thank you to Penny Best for all her hours spent getting it organized. Finally, thanks to all officers and spouses for your help in this 50-year tradition. May God bless all who had a helping hand, and may you all have a healthy happy new year.

Jack Best
