Tibb’s Eve mati­nee and Food Drive: help­ing oth­ers at Christ­mas

The Southern Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - BY CARL ROSE

Mem­bers of Fi­delity Lodge #5 in Grand Bank hosted their 22nd an­nual Tibb’s Eve Mati­nee and Food Drive Dec. 17 at the Ma­sonic Hall in Grand Bank.

The com­mu­nity came out to en­joy the mu­sic and Christ­mas joy but more im­por­tantly they came out to give back to the com­mu­nity, through freewill of­fer- ings and do­na­tions of food items.

In ad­di­tion to food items, both the Burin Penin­sula Min­is­te­rial (South­ern Divi­sion) and the Grand Bank-For­tune Com­mu­nity Care Cen­tre re­ceived $775 each. Wor­ship­ful mas­ter Woody Hick­man made the pre­sen­ta­tions.

To sweeten the pot, Harvey Bren­ton pre­sented $100 to the min­is­te­rial as­so­ci­a­tion on be­half of At­lantic Chap­ter No. 4. Adding to that, Frank Dolimount passed over $200 to com­mu­nity care cen­tre on be­half of the Boot Shine Club.

Hick­man ex­plained the an­nual event is a good­will ges­ture and outreach to the com­mu­nity to ben­e­fit those in need.

He thanked the lo­cal mu­si­cians who pro­vided the en­ter­tain­ment as well as those who turned out and gen­er­ously do­nated to the event.
