On December 15 and 16th Franklin Lodge #6 open our doors to the communities of the Upper Valley. Several brothers spent hours decorating the hall into a festive wonderland. The fans of Santa was greeted at the door by members of the lodge to the the sight of a 8 foot tree fully decorated with a model training running around the tree. They were then entered into the lodge room fully decorated with trees model villages and lights and plenty of garland. When they arrived in the East they were greeted by Santa and Mrs Claus.
They youngsters had their picture taken with the jolly old man and received a gift from him. The y would then view the room and on their way out they were offered hot chocolate with goodies. On Saturday the 15th we entertained about 30 young children with their parents and family. On Saturday the 16th with a storm in the area we felt if we got 15 kids we would consider it a winner., Little did we know that around 100 people would show up to enjoy the beauty and fellowship. The lodge received several compliments and a desire for us to do it again in 2013. The Brothers of Franklin Lodge are brainstorming how to improve and also enlarge the program. There is even talk of a Christmas table lodge. Stay tuned for further information and the happenings of Franklin Lodge #6 in Lebanon NH.
