Helping the Salvation Army 2008
Dunnís Rock Lodge
along with the Pisgah Chapter of the Eastern Star and the Transylvania Shrine
Club rang the bells for the Salvation Army on December 1st, 8th
and 9th 2008. Below the hardy souls are pictured have great fun and
fellowship. If you have not participated in this activity I encourage you and
your organization to try it. It is wonderful way to support a worthy cause.
Pictured above is Sister Patty Banks and WB/ Noble Kieth Mann PM. These
two had a great time on a blustery day. WB/Noble Keith Harbin (not pictured) had
just been relieved from his early morning shift. WB Keith managed to keep from
having his likeness captured during our adventure but he rang the bells on two
of the three days.
Above from left to right are; WB/Noble Kieth Mann PM, Sister Nancy
Grimshaw, WB/Noble Joe Burkel PM and Brother Dick Harmon. They held down the
mid-day shift on the first Monday. It was a bit warmer then.
WB Kieth, Sister Nancy and Brother Dick are joined by the photographer
WB Dana Hawkins PM in this photo.
Brother Mac McKee joined WB Joe and Brother Dick as it began to get a
bit chilly in the later afternoon. Mac is the one on the right.
As the snow flurries began to fly Brother Dick (left) and Brother Mac
were joined by Brother/Noble Virgil McClure. WB Kieth, WB Dana and Brother
Virgil finished up a fun but chilly day of bell ringing.
The following Monday found WB/Noble James Self PM, WB Kieth and WB Dana
(not pictured) out early to catch the early bird shoppers.
WB Joe and Brother Dick were back for another mid-day shift. These guys
rang all three days!
Brother Virgil had so much fun the first day he brought his lovely wife
Sister Reva McClure out on this trip to help him. As you can see it was a bit
Brother/Noble Fred Tinsley is seen here with Sister Nancy during their
chilly afternoon shift.
The early morning shift on Tuesday the 9th was relieved by Brother Jeff Hubbard and Brother/Noble Bob Wilkerson seen here ringing up a storm. Literally, it began to rain shortly after these two took over.
Brother/Noble Bob England and Brother/Noble Ken Noyd held down the final
three hours on that rainy cold afternoon but the results were well worth the
effort. All together for the three days we managed to raise $1,402.25 for the
Salvation Army. This was quite a bit better than the previous yearís effort.
Thank you all for your generous support.
