The Elks Lodge is now holding its annual Christmas Cheer canvas in the Flin Flon Creighton area. Exalted Ruler Gord Evans says the funds raised are used to buy gifts and food items for hampers to feed the needy at Christmas time. He says they desperately need held with the canvas as he hasn’t got a lot of people anymore as there are only six in the organization and they’re not too active because they’re up in age so it’s pretty hard to send them out on the street to canvas. He says they’ll run this month and probably into next month and it can last just about up to Christmas time noting although they stop canvassing people keep sending donations in right up to when the put up the hampers.
