Annual Bend Lodge Christmas food basket program a HUGE success!

Thanks to A LOT of hard work by brothers, their ladies and other family members from both Bend and Redmond Lodges, the 2017 Masonic Food Basket Program was the most successful we’ve ever had!

Using recommendations from local FAN (Family Access Network) advocates, approximately 75 food baskets were put together and delivered to needy families. The North Albertson’s in Bend made us a KILLER deal on all the food items, which allowed us to increase the number of overall baskets from past years. Most of these were “standard sized” baskets, which included a turkey, ten pounds of potatoes, canned veggies, butter, gravy mix and rolls. For a number of larger families, a large cooked ham was added to the basket as well. In addition, several baskets were delivered to both the Shepherd’s House and the Bethlehem Inn.

While the majority of these baskets were delivered to families in the Bend area, several also went to Redmond-area families, delivered by Redmond Lodge WM Travis Bryan. Additional baskets were picked up and delivered by members of the Prineville Lodge.

A warm and heart-felt “THANK YOU!” to all who helped pull this event off, and to those brothers who made some substantial individual donations!

Setting up the assembly line…

That A LOT of Christmas baskets!

Our illustrious Christmas Basket coordinator, Dave Johnson, PM, …who deserves a week on the beach for all his hard work!
