Faculty Student Appreciation Awards 2016

Coachella Lodge #476 broke new ground with it's first ever Faculty Student Appreciation awards. Schools local to the Coachella Valley awarded their most deserving faculty members and students for this award. Twenty three students and educators were awarded during the ceremony. The Thomas Jefferson School band was in attendance to play throughout the event. The lodge room was packed with teachers, students, parents and families. It was a great time and afterwards attendees were treated to a delicious lasagna dinner catered by Brother Hector Minnion.

Many thanks to the committee and Wor Fred McCubbin for spearheading this great event. Kudos to our high desert brothers at Yucca Lodge for inspiring Coachella Lodge to pursue such a great program. We look forward to making this an annual event for the community!

Grand Masters Visit April 2016

This month Coachella Lodge had a very special visit from the Grand Master of California, David Perry. Along with the Grand Master we were able to host his wife, a number of Grand Lodge officers, our brothers and guests. The Eastern Star was present to help decorate and setup the dining hall. A big thanks to Worthy Matron Jacqueline McDermot and her creative use of children's books to honor the Raising-A-Reader program. Kudos to our Junior Warden Brother Bernard Shannon as he undertook the monumental task of feeding everyone with exquisite beef, chicken and vegetarian dishes. Recognition and thanks to our youth orders the Demolay and Job's Daughters who were present to represent their orders then help with setup, serving and cleanup. A big thanks to all the brothers who came together to make this a big success. This was indeed an excellent milestone achievement for Coachella Lodge #476 and we look forward to Grand Master David Perry visiting our lodge again in August to deliver his Masonic Education series.
