Two such groups are the Elks Lodge 2626 of Lake A1- manor and Mountain Circle Family Services of Lassen and Plumas counties, as well as a newer location in the Reno area. Elks members recently traveled to the Greenville of- fice of Mountain Circle to give director Shauna Ross- ington a $2,000 check, which she accepted gratefully. "Funding is getting cut everywhere," she said, "so everything helps." The donation will make summer camp possible for many of the kids in foster care she added. The money was raised during the 2009 Wheel Around Lake Almanor, an annual Elks fundraiser to provide support for those in the community who have been seriously injured or who are gravely ill, and for local agencies that provide needed community services The list of people who have become regular sup- porters over the course of the 12-year history of the event has grown to include a Canadian who attended last year and sent a check this year. The theme of the event this year will be loyalty, an expression of gratitude for many loyal donors who have supported their efforts in so If it's we can' ll -find som o can.
