Wednesday, December 22, 2021: Bengston Holiday Food Baskets Delivery

What a banner day for Freemasonry at Gulf Beach Lodge. We started the morning with the delivery of Christmas food baskets to twelve families in need in our community. The Lodge provided groceries for a full ham dinner with all the trimmings, a true feast.

After the baskets were delivered, brothers from the Lodge met with Brother Pete Bengston and presented him a framed copy of the resolution passed by the craft on December 16th naming our annual holiday basket program the “Bengston Holiday Food Baskets” in honor of brother Pete’s many years of selfless service with this project. Brother Pete served as chairman of this program for over ten years.

Finally, this evening the Lodge presented Christmas gifts to W∴ Guy Wilson at the Masonic Home. W∴ Guy is an honorary member of Gulf Beach Lodge and was a frequent attendee at our meetings prior to Covid.

It was a busy day, but one filled with the very best of Freemasonry.
