Christmas Fantasy '98

 Wednesday, December 9, 1998

Come one, come all to the Port Charlotte Town Center mall. The Town Center donated the space for this Christmas Village display. Recently, there was a preview and cocktail party for Elks Lodge members and their guests. Ming Court provided the snacks, and Hoorah's Nest donated the door prizes. The Department 56 Villages will be on display for everyone's enjoyment through Dec 31.

Ann Curley started this collection of wonderment, as a hobby. No one should miss this breathtaking exhibit. Admission is free, but donations are requested. All funds are to benefit Umatillla, the Florida Elks, Children's Hospital, and local charities. Participating Loges are: Charlotte 2153, Deep Creek 2763, Punta Gorda 2606 and Rodonda 2710.
