Santa Maria Elks "Christmas in the Country": A "drive thru" holiday extravaganza is being prepared for all to see at the Unocal Event Center.

Each year, Shannon Elliott works with CALM therapists to identify those clients who could really use some help with gifts from the community as they are not well off financially.  This year, because of Covid, CALM is pivoting to provide gift cards (such as to Target or Wall Mart or others) instead of physical gifts.  The hope is to reduce the risk of spread for everyone involved.
Below is information on the collection.  Give Shannon a call at 801-915-6887 if you have any questions and/or would like to participate.  Strictly optional.  It’s very nice knowing that your gift really does go to some needy families.

I have no idea why I included these pictures.
No hidden message.
Perhaps because I hadn't had breakfast yet?
