Sequoia Elementary School Spelling Bee
Sponsored by
S.W. Hackett Masonic Lodge
Thursday, June 13, 2015

June 13, 2015 our Lodge was again well represented by various Brothers, at the Sequoia Elementary School, Spelling Bee.  Bro. Robert Salini, Master, 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 again 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.

 Although you are encouraged to support the Partnership in Education Program when you receive your dues notice, you are asked 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!

Sincerely & Fraternally,
Bro Jim Achenbach, PM
Chairman, Public Schools Committee
