No idle hands here!

Bessie Andrews, Lenore Westman, Mary Onyon, Elaine Murphy and Elinor Blakely of Blaine’s Deborah Rebekah Lodge #321, a charitable society affiliated with the Oddfellows, got a thank you certificate from American Forests for their 20-tree donation. The donation was made as a memorial to all Blaine fishers and the trees will go to repair damaged areas in national forests.

The Rebekah lodge meets twice a month to organize fundraising activities to benefit local and national causes. Last year they donated funds to the Blaine food bank, the senior center, the boys and girls club, the utilities for needy families program, the Blender youth center, and the American Arthritis and Visual Aid Foundation. “We try and keep a lot of it within our community,the need is here” Onyon said. “It might not be a lot but if everybody did a little it would make a lot of difference.”

The lodge meets at the senior center the second and fourth Monday of the month at 1 p.m. Call 332-4412 for more information.
