Quinebaug Lodge and Doric Chapter Host Santa
By Bro. Jimmy Falzone
On Sunday December 12th the Quinebaug Lodge and Doric Chapter of DeMolay had its long overdue Christmas gathering. About 62 members, families and significant others attended and enjoyed fine food and most of all being together. New unwrapped toys were collected and donate to the local Toys for Tots for the less fortunate children in the area.
The best part of the gathering was watching the excitement of the children when told Santa was coming, and they all went running outside in the parking lot to see. What they saw and heard was sirens and flashing red lights as a vehicle pulled into the parking lot. The children and adults alike started cheering and clapping as Santa exits his special vehicle and says HO-HO-HO. As Santa approached the children, they jumped up and down with joy and so much excitement.
Santa needed no help to get the children back in the building as they all followed him to his special chair. He waved to everyone and started to call names and hand out the gifts to the children.
Many people were so grateful that this annual Christmas party event was not canceled due to Covid-19 this year.
