I would like to thank all the individuals and local businesses that donated raffle prizes for the annual Elks Picnic that was held Aug. 9 at Florence Keller Park. The weather was fantastic, and fun was had by all.

Great prizes and gift certificates were donated by Chere's Boutique, Perlita's Mexican Restaurant, Custom Dezign Graphics, Walmart, The Home Depot, McElfresh Law Firm, Coast Auto Center, Northwoods Restaurant, Disturbing the Peace, Del Norte Office Supply, Wendy's Hair Salon and many individual picnic-goers. If I forgot anyone, I apologize. It is not intentional. Again, on behalf of the Crescent City Elks Lodge, I thank you.
