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.
