Santa Barbara Masonic Lodge #192 and Scottish Rite Valley held their annual Christmas Party on Tuesday.
Local Masons and the Scottish Rite Language Clinic's children and families enjoyed the festive event, and Santa!
The event was held at the Masonic Temple, 16 E. Carrillo St.
Over 120 people showed for a dinner of prime rib, turkey, salad and dessert. After receiving gifts from Santa, the children had their choice of fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies, straight from Santa's Kitchen. Santa (David Gillette) traveled from his vacation at the Santa Paula Masonic Lodge, where off season he is the 2014 master.
Santa was helped in the kitchen by Chef Tom Main, Carpinteria Lodge (32 degree SR), and lead Chef Ian Jackson, Santa Barbara Lodge (32 degree -KCCH - SR).
