Milwaukie Elks host Backpack Buddies

The Milwaukie Elks Lodge is planning a community event to support North Clackamas School District’s Backpack Buddies program to provide nutritious weekend food packages for kids in need.

Those seeking family-friendly fun, and an opportunity to learn more about the community, will find all that and more at the event that will include free pizza, free bowling, wine tasting, dance demonstrations, gymnasium activities, a display from the Oak Lodge History Detectives and a chance to see the completely refurbished outdoor swimming pool, which opens this summer. All are welcome.

“Accentuate the Positive—a Happening” includes opportunities for charitable donations, and the purchase of raffle tickets and Girl Scout cookies. Another showcased activity is the chance to donate and pack food for Backpack Buddies. Donations of unused gardening tools and gloves will be accepted for Annie’s Community Garden.

The event will take place on Sunday, Feb. 24, from 3 to 8 p.m. at the Milwaukie Elks Lodge, located at 13121 S.E. McLoughlin Blvd. in Oak Grove. For more information, call Thelma Haggenmiller at 503-659-5590.
