December 2018

(Updated Monday, 10th December 2018)

Annual Communication rescheduled to Tuesday, 18 December, 7:00 p.m.

PC Schools announced they are closing for students and staff on Tuesday, 11 December as well as all of the surrounding counties. To maintain our safety, I am cancelling our SC for tomorrow night.

We will hold an Emergent Communication next Tuesday, 18 December, at 1900 for the purpose of conducting our Annual Communication and collecting food for the Christian Help Center.

For those having to continue working, please stay safe, warm and aware of your surroundings.

Consider checking on your neighbors, our widows and others that may need assistance and make sure everyone is able to be warm and fed. If anyone is in need, please reach out to one of the Wardens or myself ASAP, and we will make arrangements to assist as best we can.

Thank you all for your assistance and prayers for safety. We will see you next Tuesday.

No BackPack Pals this month, but families and children need food especially during the holidays. WB Robert Allen will have more information about what you can do at Christmastime. Food Bank of NC welcomes donations all year.

Christmas Food Drive. At the last stated communication, the Lodge Assembled voted to have a Christmas Food Drive! We are asking all brothers to bring a grocery bag of canned and or non-perishable food items to the Annual Communication. Contact WB Norman for an example list of items to put together that has an estimated cost of $20.00.

Tuesday, 25 December (Christmas Day)

  • Lodge is dark. Enjoy Christmas with your families

Tuesday, 1 January 2019

  • This website will go dark. See "This Website" page for more information

Backpack Pals

BackPack Pals began in 2005 with a vision to address the needs of children who often don’t have enough to eat over the weekend. In other areas, it may be known as 'Weekend Power Pack,' but it is the same program.

Volunteers meet the third Wednesday of every month (ex. December), 1:00 p.m., at Beulah Baptist Association, corner of Morgan St and Long Ave. Coordinate with WB Robert Allen, PM.

The overhead is only 3% - which means that 97 cents of every dollar goes directly to feeding our hungry neighbors.

Please make plans to be at the Temple to work some or all day, as your cabletow permits. We typically have more than enough people to get the day started, but by the time we need to shut down and clean up, we have run out of help. If you are only available after work, we can still use your valuable assistance. We start preparing for the day around 0800 with the first fish hitting the fryer around 1045. We start selling at 1100 and will go until sold out or 1900. We then have to clean everything and return all equipment and supplies to storage; quite an event!
