The Claremore Elks Lodge will once again host Christmas in July, benefitting the Blue Star Mothers OK Chapter 20. The 15th annual Christmas in July event will be held July 20 at 6p at the Claremore Elks Lodge.
The Blue Star Mothers main focus is sending Freedom Boxes to our troops serving overseas. These boxes are just a small way to say “thank you” to our soldiers for their sacrifice and patriotism to our nation. These boxes include such items as travel-size toiletries, paperback books, snack foods, small games, note cards, batteries, and more.
Funds for the Blue Star Mothers are acquired through items donated and sold at a silent and live auction at Christmas in July, as well as sponsorship and ticket sales. If you are interested in donating an auction item or being a sponsor (levels begin at $250), please contact Frances Dudley at firstname.lastname@example.org or 918-637-7619.
