"Boxes from Home" benefits our soldiers

With lots of help from businesses in Chino Valley, Prescott & Prescott Valley and a financial donation from Prescott Lodge no. 330, the members of Lodge #2842 solicited, collected, crafted, sorted, packaged and mailed 28 boxes of useful and desired items to a unit of men and women in Iraq that included 5 local soldiers. Fifteen of our members met at the Senior Center on Monday to complete the final packaging under the direction of Chaplain Sandy Wilkinson with very helpful advice from member Rosella Lewis and Ngaire Hammet who had done a similiar project for the local American Legion. It was a great team effort, one that was very satisfying and will be repeated when we can gather more items.
