"December was an exciting month for our club. We had our Christmas party at Bear River Entertainment Center where all the kids bowled, played arcade games and laser tag. There was an ugly Christmas sweater contest with two winners. A couple weeks later two of our members went shopping for blankets using the funds we made from our November desert auction. We were able to buy 103 blankets that were donated to the Fortuna Volunteer Fire Departments Santa’s Sleigh Program."
