Coachella Lodge #476 broke new ground with it's first ever Faculty Student Appreciation awards. Schools local to the Coachella Valley awarded their most deserving faculty members and students for this award. Twenty three students and educators were awarded during the ceremony. The Thomas Jefferson School band was in attendance to play throughout the event. The lodge room was packed with teachers, students, parents and families. It was a great time and afterwards attendees were treated to a delicious lasagna dinner catered by Brother Hector Minnion.
Many thanks to the committee and Wor Fred McCubbin for spearheading this great event. Kudos to our high desert brothers at Yucca Lodge for inspiring Coachella Lodge to pursue such a great program. We look forward to making this an annual event for the community!
