With the weather having been so mild this year, it’s hard to believe the Holiday Season is here, but it is!
The Ouray Elks Lodge works all year, holding special events, BBQ’s and meetings, raising money for the community. The funds these hardy volunteers raise are used to help pay medical expenses for some, scholarships to deserving students, and FUN! Perhaps one of the most touching events is when Santa comes to town. Elk members hold a special potluck dinner a week or so before Christmas, to help out Santa and his elves by stuffing dozens upon dozens of stockings. On Christmas Eve, several members of the club offer their services even further to St. Nick by becoming honorary elves for the evening, driving him to and fro, across Ouray County in all types of weather, to help him deliver gifts and good cheer.
If you are planning on spending Christmas Eve with us in in Ouray this year, let us know the names, ages and gender of your children, and we will take care of the rest. Or, if you would like to arrange a special visit, give them a call at 970-325-4510 and leave a message, or email [email protected]
