Get On Our Bib And Tucker; It’s Off To The Elks Purple Bubble Ball

Huh??? One’s finest clothes, dressed up, as in The men were told to put on their best bib and tucker for the dinner dance. Although wearing either a bib (frill at front of a man’s shirt) or a tucker (ornamental lace covering a woman’s neck and shoulders) is obsolete, the phrase survives. [Mid-1700s].  On our PURPLE PIGS there is a saying: “A COIN A DAY AND THEY’LL WALK, TALK, SEE AND PLAY,” which is really a polite way of saying… we should do a little more. Just a lot of people doing just a little more to help the handicapped children that is the real reason for our existence. What we need is a lot of people working together for the same cause. That’s the Elks.  Please join us for the evening!

We danced from 7:30 to 11:30 and only missed the Tango!
