The annual Elf Walk fundraiser to benefit the Old Forge Library was held on Wednesday, October 3, with Head Elf, Gary “Bah Humbug” Lee, leading the pack of walkers with assistance by library elves Snowflake and Jingle Belle.

Twenty-seven participants, including Kiwanis Key Club members from the Town of Webb School, raised more than $700 in pledges to walk three miles to Thendara and back to the library.

Upon returning to the library the walkers were treated to a pizza party. Prizes were awarded to Key Club participants for raising the most money by a group, and to Beverly Meeker for the most money raised by an individual.
