Christmas Toy Drive

posted by admin
November 18, 2020

My Brothers:

Each year, a "Christmas in July" toy drive is held at Evergreen Lodge in Riverside; always in mid-July. The toys are collected for delivery to the Shriners’ medical center in Pasadena. It will come as no surprise that the event did not happen this July. However, a team of people is putting together an event in December. This will simply be a toy collection at Evergreen Lodge, for the same purpose. There will be no meal, no party, no Santa, and no elves – other than the volunteers who decide to dress up as elves. The drop off will probably take place outside and/or under the front covered patio, permitting social distancing. Only volunteers will be in the building, sanitizing and organizing the donations, then packing them in boxes for the trip to Pasadena.

Naturally, the organizers need assistance, particularly in (1) getting toys and (2) getting the word out. As for toys, the organizers are looking for new toys. Batteries should be provided for toys that require them, so that the toy will be usable immediately once it is given to a child. NO STUFFED ANIMALS ARE TO BE INCLUDED WITH THIS TOY DRIVE.

It is my request that each of the members of Temescal Palms Masonic Lodge (1) get the word out to their friends and family, and (2) prepare to participate by contributing a toy or two.

The toy collection is set for Saturday, December 12, 2020, from 10 AM to 2 PM.

It is difficult to convey the feelings we have to fully communicate our appreciation for the dedication, courage, and sacrifice, that our veterans have made for freedom. So, we will offer you this video presentation, and a few words more.

What cost, Freedom?
When you weigh the cost, and find the scales uneven.
Just, think of what life would be like, if there weren't those who would stand and pay the price.
For there is nothing so precious, as that, which is purchased with blood.
JB 2002


Here’s to the Heroes – A tribute by the Masons of Division 8, Free and Accepted Masons of California

 Each made a commitment to serve their country and Flag

Never to allow their Love of God to ever wane or sag

Through patriotism they put their families on hold 

To battle evil in all weather, even in the cold

It’s to their sacrifice that we honor them today

We owe each of them a debt that we shall never be able to repay

So proudly fly our Flag every chance you get 

In honor of those men and women whose memory we now protect
