In Loving Memory: It is with a sad heart that I start this article from the Anaheim Lodge. On Saturday April 17, 2022 Josephine Zannitto passed away peacefully with no illnesses, she now has gone to be with her husband Ralph. Josie was our oldest member at 100 years and 5 months. She has been a member of the Anaheim Lodge since 1971. Josie was very active in her younger days with our Anaheim Bowling League. But she still enjoyed coming to our Casino Nights and Bingo, right up to the end. Josie you will be missed, your personality was always pleasant and you were a friend to everyone.
On Saturday April 2, 2022, the Anaheim Lodge #2076 crowned their new lodge queen Natalie Lavezzari. The event was held at the Women’s Civic Club in Garden Grove. The Anaheim Lodge is proud to continue its standing tradition of Lodge queens. Natalie’s Nonna, Babe Peluso, was the first queen of the Anaheim Lodge. Natalie was preceded by a long list of family members who were also queens of the Anaheim Lodge. She hopes to participate in the Grand Lodge Royal Pageant in the near future. Natalie, the officers, and members of the lodge are very proud of you.
