LIVE ... LAUGH ... CAMP
Last year, Camp Elkanah proved to be a fun and life-changing experience for many of our boys. They are again looking forward to this awesome five-day adventure. It's not too late to register ... though age groups are filling up fast. If you are interested, please visit the Camp Elkanah Facebook page.
Thank yous wouldn't be complete without mentioning the Milton-Freewater Elks Club. We are grateful for their partnership and support this year. The enthusiastic volunteers provided much-needed assistance, bicycle helmets, bicycle licenses, and other bicycle accessories. This was capped off by providing a terrific hamburger lunch.

The school year is at an end and Danner Farms is gearing up for its busiest time of year. Already, we've completed one of our most popular events:
The Annual Bicycle Giveaway.
On Saturday, May 19th, dozens of eager children and adults arrived at Gordy Plastics' parking lot to preview more than 65 refurbished, pre-owned bicycles in all shapes, colors, and sizes. The adults were as excited as the kids.
It was a great way to spend a Saturday morning: FREE bikes; FREE helmets; FREE bicycle licenses; and FREE food! By the end of the morning, more than 60 bicycles had been given away ... and probably many more hamburgers. If you or someone you know needs a bicycle, contact us at (541) 861-3029. You don't need to wait until next spring. The Danner Farms' Bicycle Giveaway is an ongoing, year-round project.
It takes many hands and willing hearts to make the Bike Giveaway happen. We are grateful to the Milton-Freewater Police Department, the College Place Police Department, and numerous private individuals who generously donated scores of
pre-owned bikes. Gary Maggard headed up our dedicated repair crew comprised of Brad Taylor, Jim Goodenough, and Carl Knaak. We also owe a special debt of gratitude to Gordy and Joel Smith of Gordy Plastics for providing storage and work space for this ever-growing project.
