The baskets included a large turkey, pies, and all the sides necessary for the most sumptuous Christmas dinner. Gulf Beach Lodge is pleased to be able to assist in making this a great holiday season for those most in need. Gulf Beach Lodge has provided Holiday baskets for over 45 years and looks forward to continuing the tradition well into the future. (Photo – Lodge members pose with gift boxes for Christmas)
