How Many Pancakes Can You Eat in Support of Local Theatre?
With everything that theatre programs offer, it's no wonder the Butte Elks Lodge is on board to support the Orphan Girl Children's Theatre next month with a Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser. Of course, none of this is possible without the community's support, so thank you in advance to those who plan to attend. So, here's what to expect during the fundraiser on February 5th. From 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., the Butte Elks Lodge (206 W Galena) will serve pancakes, with everything from eggs, bacon, and sausage, to juice and coffee. The cost is only $10 a plate, and children five and under eat for free. Proceeds will help to pay tuition fees for aspiring young actors and actresses. So, to all supporters, take a well-deserved bow! Bravo!

A 1970s Kid's Longing for Clackers, Pong, Battleship...
As a product of the 1970s, there's still a longing to reminisce about toys from a decade that offered a limited selection of electronics. Not to mention nothing that resembles the technology we have today. With the exception of retro toys such as Simon, Speak & Spell, Pong, Atari 2600, Baby Alive, Easy Bake Oven, and Mattel's Electronic Football, most that held a child's undivided attention that did not require an electrical outlet or batteries 50 years ago were Rubik's Cube, Pet Rocks, Weebles, Clackers, Big Wheel, Connect Four, Uno, Barbie, G.I. Joe, Nerf Football, possibly Hungry Hungry Hippo and more. As for Cabbage Patch Dolls, they were manufactured in mass consumption in 1982 by Xavier Roberts. So, unless you were able to purchase an original prototype created by Martha Nelson Thomas in 1976, we'll save discussion of that trendy doll for an article about toys from the 1980s. So, what toys did you embrace growing up in the 1970s?
