Professor Macklemore elf, Dwarf Elf, and their team of elves help children shop for family and friends. Gifts are wrapped volunteers. Organizers say this was their “best year yet.” Money raised at this years’ event will go to the Girl Guides 0 to 6 programs in Lumby, and the Seniors Stockings project.
