December 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 they so 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 begins

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.

Merry Christmas
