On Thursday, December 14th, volunteers from Summit Lodge joined East Central District Veterans Chairman Robert Colwell and his Committee serve dinner to over 60 veterans at the annual Veterans Christmas Party at Lyons Hospital.  Afterwards, they got a special visit from Santa and received gift bags filled to the brim with everything from books to socks.  Among those who served the veterans, was member Fred Willecke's daughter Caroline Willecke, who not only volunteered to serve our veterans, but will be competing in the East Central Districts Hoop Shoot at Rahway on January 2nd in the 8 & 9 year old division...Please come out and cheer her and all the winners from Summit on!  For more information on the upcoming District Hoop Shoot, please contact Mike Williams, Chairman at fmikewilliams@aol.com. Wishing all those who serve, our members and families joy at this very special time of year!    Lois Pagano, DD East Central District and Secretary, Summit Lodge #1246
