You are invited March 8 at 6:30 in the lower Elks Hall in Courtenay to celebrate a valuable community partnership.

The Georgia Straight Big Band once again offers its spectacular talent to local fundraising.

The Courtenay Elks are proud to have quietly contributed to the community by serving as the GSBB home base for the past six years: So it is that the big band is blowing its horn for the Elks!

The Elks have been contributing to the Comox Valley for the past 92 years through generous donations to local organizations such as the food bank, Boys and Girls Club, Special Olympics, Sonshine Soup Kitchen, CV Ground Search and Rescue, and local student bursaries. The Elks have aimed to make community space accessible for fundraising, meetings, and community celebrations by providing affordable rental space in the lower hall.

In 2006 the Elks donated Kye Bay Park to the Town of Comox. On Denman Island, the Elks own and operate a 35-acre property fondly known as Elkhaven to provide groups of children and adults with challenges valuable camping experience (at no cost).

Some special friends have volunteered to provide an ethnic food plate at 6:30 this Saturday for only $5. All members of the community are invited.

The Elks Club is at 231 Sixth St. (across from the Atlas Café). For details, phone 250-334-2512.
