21, 2013, again, a day we all looked
forward to. Today, Samuel Warren Hackett Lodge's
Brethren and ladies gathered once again with the food and gifts that
generously donated to help four families in need of assistance, chosen
by Sequoia Elementary
School. Worshipful Jim Achenbach, PM, organizes this event each
year. It is Hackett's way of helping to make a better Christmas
meal and some gifts for the children of these families.
The families are always thankful and often emotional.
The volunteers gather and fun
The food and
gifts await sorting and assigning.
Checking the list as the Brothers and ladies try to figure out who gets what.
A bit more consultation with Worshipful Achenbach and the decision is made.
Brother Bob Salini is anxious the get the gifts and food ready for delivery.
Brother Salini poses with the drivers... Worshipful Bob Smith (looking a bit like Santa) and Brother Chuck Caskey.
Thank you all for your wonderful assistance
and we'll see you next year.
