The Olympia Elks Lodge
1818 4th Avenue East
This delightful event is designed for children ages 2-7 and their families. Children are invited to bring their favorite teddy bear or stuffed animal of their choice. The Elks Lodge will be festively decorated for Christmas and with Santa and Mrs. Claus present, the children’s senses will be peaked as they participate in all the merriment. There will be musical entertainment, craft projects, cookie decorating, snacks and more. Remember to bring your camera to take pictures with Santa. Teddy Bear nurses will make sure all is well with our stuffed animal guests. This will be a great opportunity for parents and grandparents alike to kick off the holiday season with their wide eyed little one. Net proceeds for this event will go to support the various programs sponsored by Capital Rotary, placing emphasis on helping Olympia School District’s Welcome Room. We also participate in the Homeless Backpack Program assuring homeless kids in Thurston County get food to survive on the weekends when school is out. Likewise, we assist Safe Place and the Family Support Center with donations to help the homeless. Your participation in the Teddy Bear Tea Party will help provide the clothing, ongoing school supplies and hygiene items these children need.
