Santa Visits the Del Coronado

December 13, 2011

On December 12, 2011 the Green Valley Elks Lodge #2592 demonstrated the
meaning "Elks Care - Elks Share". All 97 residents of Del Coronado Sr.
Living Apts. were treated to a wonderful Christmas party during their lunch
hour. Each resident received a Christmas card with money inside and a gift
bag containing various toiletries, candy, playing cards and etc. They
especially liked Santa Claus as many of the ladies wanted to sit on his lap
and have their picture taken with him and Santa's special Elf.
Cathy Travis and Deborah Berntzen from the Elks Auxiliary baked special
Christmas cookies and lemon bars for this festive occasion. Also, 20 door
prizes were given to the lucky residents with the winning numbers. Sharing
this special time with the residents were the following Elk members and
Auxiliary members: Chuck George, Tom Shanahan, June Shanahan, Cheryl Ponzo,
Susan Anderson, Gary Anderson, Antwon Saunders, Loretta Potenzieri, Mario
Potenzieri, Gail Hardin, Cathy Travis and Deborah Berntzen.
