Sequoia Elementary School Spelling Bee
S.W. Hackett Masonic Lodge
Thursday, May 22, 2014
On May 22 our
Lodge was well represented by various Brothers, wives and children at the
Sequoia Elem Spelling Bee. Bro. Ryan
Bacaoco, Master and Bro. Bob Salini, Senior Warden, awarded the first, second
and third place prizes to the 4th, 5th, and 6th
grade class winners. Mr. Kissel, the
school’s Principal, introduced our Lodge and commended our participation. He mentioned that the monetary awards we hand
out at the end of the evening are significant motivators for the entire school
to study and prepare. It was a fun evening and it felt good to be out in the
community representing our Lodge and supporting the children.
are encouraged to support the Partnership in Education Program when you receive
your dues notice, you are welcome to contribute at any time. Our Teacher of the Year Award night, food and
presents during the holiday season, and sponsorship of the Spelling Bee are
worthy and wonderful events. The money
used does not come out of Lodge funds – it is a separate account that is funded
by the generosity of the Brethren.
Please consider donating today!
