It happened again on December 21, 2014.  Today, Samuel Warren Hackett Lodge's Brethren and ladies gathered, as they have all these many years, to once again put together, for delivery, the food and gifts that they so generously donated to help four families in need of assistance.  There were four families chosen by Sequoia Elementary School, and this year....Two others were added due to a truly heartfelt necessity...  Worshipful Jim Achenbach, PM, organizes this event each year and does such a wonderful job.  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 which often is contagious. 

The Master, Wor. Robert Salini, does his best to get the volunteers to gather.

The Brethren were told by one of the ladies, to set up to have their picture taken.... And we know better than to argue.

Then we got the ladies to join us for a nice group picture.


The food for the families and the gifts for the kids await sorting and assigning.

Packing is complete.

Signing the Christmas cards for the presentations.

The packages are tagged, addressed and loaded into the cars of those who volunteered to deliver the happiness.

Thank you all for your wonderful assistance
and we'll see you next year.

Merry Christmas
