The Deming Elks Lodge No. 2750 distributed over 600 dictionaries to third graders in both the Deming and Truth or Consequences Schools. Secretary Dave Johnson explained that the distribution is through the national Dictionary Project, with most Elks Lodges in the state participating. "It was our pleasure to contribute to this project," Johnson said. He added the project was funded in part through Bingo charity money raised by the lodge’s weekly Bingo on Monday nights. The public is invited to Bingo beginning at 6:30 pm at 3401 Raymond Reed Blvd.
