The Carlinville Elks Lodge recently celebrated Christmas in its usual fashion by hosting a Breakfast with Santa and delivering Christmas boxes to area families.
The Breakfast with Santa event saw 188 attendees and 96 kids. Children walked away with door prizes, a “big prize,” got to play games, and see visit with Santa. Four children were able to walk away with bikes as prizes.
The Elks put together 194 Christmas baskets for area families. The Elks also partnered with Project 3rd day to take baskets to surrounding communities.
