Dallas Brethren Visit Masonic Home Nov. 2018, Children Enjoy Cookout
On a chilly November morning, four members of Dallas Lodge #182 and their wives, along with a Brother and his wife from Illinois, travelled to Macon Ga to have their 3rd annual cookout for the children at the Masonic Children’s Home. A pit stop was made in route at Battle Hill Lodge #523, to eat breakfast at their Lodge fundraiser. Masonic fellowship was enjoyed over a hearty breakfast. Upon arrival at the Home, they started setting up the equipment to cook out. The kids started stirring out the their rooms and quickly demonstrated how to make two dozen Krispy Kreme donuts disappear in record time. The cooking began and in no time lunch was ready to be served. After prayer was offered up by one the the kids, everyone loaded up on chicken wings, corn on the cob, curly fries, fruit, cookies and cupcakes. Many of the kids returned for second and third helpings. Root Beer seemed to be the favorite flavor of soft drinks provided. Lots of thank you’s and hugs were given by the kids to show their appreciation for the fine meal. Plenty of leftovers and cookies went with the kids back to their halls. Everyone went to the steps out front to have a photograph made to commemorate the wonderful day. After lunch, a tour was given of the first cottage occupied by the junior girls. A more beautiful building could not have been built for these kids and it showed in the smiles of the girls as they showed off their rooms. Hanging out and talking with the kids capped a wonderful day, proving that these kids truly enjoy a small investment of time and an attentive ear. As everyone left, the girls introduced them to the stray cat that they rescued, who they aptly named Mason. Leaving was a sad moment but mixed with joy for such a wonderful day. Everyone felt sorry for the lodge members who missed the opportunity to share in such a blessing. Hopefully next year, will provide another fun day for everyone.
