    We are doing a different take on the Elf on the Shelf holiday tradition. We are replacing the Elf with an Elk, Eddie the Elk. It’s actually an idea I came up last holiday season but it was too late to implement it. So I actually set myself a reminder on my phone for late September to look into it. Hey, I’m getting old, what can I say. 🙂
    I looked online for some smaller elks that could be used and found some. We were going to do a partnership with the city and that fell through, more on that in a separate post.

    We will be giving away 500 of them at the Dickens Faire in Old Town Elk Grove on Saturday, November 26. We are also giving some to local businesses so they can participate too. Businesses can move them around the store and encourage people to come in and find Eddie. We are going to be posing him around town in kind of a Where’s Waldo kind of thing.

    Eddie is very cute. He was going to attend a football game last night but he didn’t want to go out in the pouring rain. Maybe tonight he will. EGHS vs. FHS.

    Dang I forgot. I need to make a list of stops! I was all over Elk Grove yesterday from Laguna West to east Elk Grove. I was at the Chamber luncheon and passed out a few there. Eddie is also in Texas and Utah. A couple of former Elk Grove residents contacted me, so I sent them one.

    Check out the FB page for Eddie. Businesses are having some fun with him.

    Looking forward to having Eddie around. If we receive ours soon, I can bring him on my trips to Palm Springs and Ft. Worth over the next two weeks too. He might start getting tired!
