Masonic Angel Foundation Update


We are pleased to announce another new license for the Masonic Angel Fund

#8 Fraternity and Fuller Lodge AF & AM, Newtonville, MA 10/19/2000.

R.W. Southard Lippincott reports that Fraternity and Fuller Lodge's MAF was exceedingly well-received by the schools in the greater Newton area.
This is the second "large" school district to be covered by a Masonic Angel Fund.


This afternoon, we received a copy of a testimonial letter to Bro. Matthew Monroe of the King Hiram's Lodge Masonic Angel Fund in Provincetown, MA.
The letter is from Ms. Angela Caruso, School Adjustment Counselor. The actual letter will be on our web site shortly. Meanwhile, we would like to share the text with you now...

"On behalf of the Provincetown Public Schools, I would like to sincerely thank you and the Masonic Angel Fund for your generosity. the funds I requested to support some positive after school activities for a particular student were offered without judgment and on a same day basis. The program is in progress and I will let you know the outcome shortly.
"In my 12 years as School Adjustment Counselor, I have never seen such an efficient response to a request as this. Your program is effective and concrete. You really do make a difference! Thank you again."

Friends, this is an example of the good we can do with this program - one child at a time, one community at a time. It is a win-win-win situation - the child wins because we helped him or her, the school wins because they were able to better serve a child, the Lodge wins with another big smile from the community! This is what all we Masons should be doing!



Monday night (November 6th) Sue Hockman and Bob Fellows sojourned to Falmouth, MA to join Marine Lodge AF & AM for their annual charity auction. The Worshipful Master told the assembled group that the proceeds from the auction were to be held aside for the Masonic Angel Fund that Marine hopes to adopt at its December meeting. The friendship was warm, the food excellent and the bidding frenzied! This was a terrific night of fraternal harmony. We mention this because everyone should remember that, while the kids must always come first, the Masonic Angel Fund program is also about bringing Masons together to work for a common purpose and cement their fraternal bonds in those good works.
