"Nauset Light Lodge and The Lodge of St. Andrew Bring Music to Young Women in Need"

The Nauset Light Lodge Masonic Angel Fund in partnership with The Lodge of St. Andrew's "St. Andrew Fund" recently presented $2,000 to fund a year's worth of individual music instruction for selected students at the Latham School in Brewster, MA. The Latham School is a residential facility that serves approximately forty young women ages eight to twenty-two with various physical, emotional and developmental disorders.

Music instruction is important to these young ladies for several reasons. Instrumental music instruction and practice helps with development of fine motor skills and visual acuity. Voice instruction supports the existing speech therapy programs in which many of these youngsters participate.

The Nauset Light Lodge Masonic Angel Fund serves pre-schools and private schools in the towns of Orleans, Brewster and Eastham (Massachusetts). The relationship that Nauset Light Lodge Masonic Angel Fund has established with the Latham School is a fine exemplar of how Masonic Angel Funds should conduct their school outreach. Time and again Nauset Light has made its benevolence available in just the right amount, at just the right time to fulfill a critical need for the residents of the Latham Centers.

Pictured are Ms. Carol Sullivan (Latham School's associate director) and Leland Cobb (one of the Nauset Light MAF's trustees). Not pictured (because she was taking the photo!) was Mrs. Virginia "Grace" Atkins. Mrs. Atkins, wife of MAF trustee LeRoy Atkins, is primary outreach liaison between Nauset Light MAF and the Latham School.
