To The Editor:

My wife and I (from Milwaukee) recently attended the solar eclipse.

We had no set game plan and through happenstance found ourselves in St. Clair. We were looking for a good place to park and watch the event. We pulled into the Elks parking lot, which proved to be the best decision we made our entire trip.

The Elks were great!

The (air-conditioned) lodge and shaded pavilion were great, but it was the attitude of our hosts with John Baker and his crew attending to our every need that made for a wonderful experience.

We certainly came away from St. Clair with a positive view of the community. Thanks again to Elks 2651 for their wonderful hospitality.
