Lots going on this month. Keep in mind that giving an Elks Membership might be a good stocking stuffer. Maybe you know someone who is on the fence about becoming a member, give them a push and let's try to grow our numbers!

If you have kids please consider entering them in the hoop shoot Saturday, December 15 at 1:00 PM at the Tiffin Middle School. This free-throw shooting competition is FREE and OPEN to all children who will be between the ages of 8-13 AS OF APRIL 1, 2019. There are Girls and Boys divisions for 8-9, 10-11, and 12-13 year old age groups.

Then sign your kids up for the Kids' Christmas party. They will get a gift from the Elks and get to meet Santa on December 15th at 10 am at the Club.


Forever in Elkdom,
