Catalina Mountain Elks Lodge No. 2815 spread a little Christmas cheer at the Arizona Elks Pediatric Clinic at Banner University Medical Center and the Arizona State Veterans Home. Committee Chairperson Joyce Garcia, accompanied by PDDGER Jack Baillargeon, Gail Baillargeon and Leading Knight Bob Kielsa, delivered gifts to the veterans and a Christmas tree decorated with Snowbabies ornaments to the Pediatric Clinic. The children also received stuffed animals, music boxes and 75 books which were donated by a secret Santa and Mrs. Claus from SaddleBrooke.
