Coachella Masonic Lodge Raising Future Leaders of Coachella

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.

Rusty Trowel - Fantastic Evening

Coachella Lodge held it's first Rusty Trowel program - with great success! Thanks to the collaboration with Palm Springs Lodge and the Rusty Trowel committee, we were able to host over 120 masons and visitors at our lodge. Many of these masons had not been in lodge for decades. The Rusty Trowel program was a great way for them to get reacquainted with lodge. For family and visitors, there was a great program on famous masons and the Coachella Lodge Masonic Family. Thanks go out to all those involved including our concordant bodies and youth groups.

Raising A Reader, Thermal CA

Coachella Lodge #476 continues to make a positive impact in the local community! Lodge representatives together with reprentatives from Palm Springs Masonic Lodge came to the Oasis Elementary School in Thermal, California. This school was the latest recipient of the Grand Lodge of California's literacy program, Raising a Reader. Our lodge was represented at the presentation program with the school's principal and community directors. Hundreds of free books were handed out to needy students along with their own book bag.

It is excellent to see our Grand Lodge programs benefit our local district.
