This evening was dedicated to the youth groups that the Masonic Lodge sponsors. A young lady from the Rainbow Girls spoke to us about patriotism. She was an eloquent speaker and her presentation was enjoyed by all. The Rainbow Girls, Job’s Daughters, Boy Scouts, and Cub Scouts brought in the Colors. The Rainbow Assembly served the diners their chicken dinners, which included dessert. The crowd was welcoming and enjoyed our entertainment. We played patriotic songs, as well as some of our traditional songs.
Those playing were: Guy Black, Tom Brunetti, Betty David, Bob Ehrhorn, Don Granberg, Ardie Jarrett, Bob Malucelli, Kit Nelson, Jack Starr, and Sheila Welt. Vocalists were: Kit Nelson, Bob Ehrhorn, Don Granberg, and Sheila Welt. Don Granberg also played the washboard. Bob Nelson was our photographer.
The cooks had hot dogs ready for those of us who arrived early to set up, which we greatly appreciated. They also offered us dinner after the meeting and some of our group took it home in carry-out containers. We only had one little glitch with the sound system, which Bob Malucelli found and fixed very quickly. He needed to replace a fuse. Overall, we were all very pleased with the evening.
