The Keizer Elks helped make the holidays
brighter for 225 local families on Saturday, Dec.
Elks members packaged up food boxes for the
families Friday, Dec. 15, in a massive production
line before delivering them on Saturday.
Of the 225 families that received boxes, 75
were for families of deployed soldiers and the
rest went to families identifi ed by the Head Start
program and Keizer schools. Gubser Elementary
School contributed 4,000 pounds of food to the
cause, but also had the most families receiving
boxes this year. The Elks raised nearly $5,000 in
donations to fi ll in the gaps.
“It’s just amazing what people give to this
event. It’s the biggest all year,” said organizer

Today in History
Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 in C Minor, Op.
67—the “Fifth Symphony”—received its world premiere
at Theater an der Wien in Vienna. Initial reviews failed
to recognize it as one of the greatest pieces of music ever
written. The concert venue was freezing cold; it was more
than two hours into a mammoth four-hour program before
the piece began; and the orchestra played poorly enough
that day to force the nearly deaf composer—also acting as
conductor and pianist—to stop the ensemble partway into
one passage and start again from the very beginning.
