Coachella Masonic Lodge Raising Future Leaders of Coachella

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.

Congratulations Coachella Lodge #476 - your officers for 2016 have been officially installed. Wor. Cesar Rubio presiding as Installing Officer; our District Inspector Wor. Jim Ridley presiding as our Master of Ceremonies; and special guest Wor. Luther Wood presiding as our Installing Chaplain.

The installation was well attended by friends, family and brothers! Everyone had a fun time retiring to the lounge within the basking glow of a well lit fireplace. Diane Reed catered the refreshments for the lodge Christmas party that followed installation.

We all look forward to Wor. Ted Parker's continuation of the five year plan and a very prosperous 2016.
