Off to the Circus – October 2011
Brainerd Masonic Lodge and the Sunnyside Chapter of the Eastern Star took the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home to the Shrine Circus back in October 2011. Over 30 tickets were donated for TBCH and over $200 in additional funds were raised to provide food, drinks and desserts for the kids and house parents. Actually, after several rounds of soda, pop corn, cotton candy, and two rounds of snow cones, we felt bad sending all the kids back wound up on sugar, but every one had fun that Saturday night’s show.
Special thanks to Dorthy Isham and the women of the Sunnyside Chapter of the Eastern Star for having the popcorn and the cotton candy ready, as well as the Alhambra Shrine and our brothers in the Shrine for their generosity. We look forward to doing this again in 2012. There is no greater joy than bringing a smile and happiness to life of child. This is true Masonry at its finest.
Masons share with the Boy Scouts – August 2011
Its a little unknown fact that the Boy Scouts of America were founded by Freemasons which shouldn’t be a big surprise to those who know that both organizations promote developing the best qualities in men, even young ones. On August 12, 2011 members of Brainerd Masonic Lodge participated in a project started by the Scottish Rite where Masons who are veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces share their experiences with the Boy Scouts to help earn their Merit Badges for the year.
Other Brainerd Lodge members who participated (not pictured) were Past Master Charlie Richardson, Past Master Jim Byrd, Bro. Bob Hood, Bro. Gene Palmer and Tiler Bro. Harry Paulk. Brainerd Lodge was a sponsor of the event and looks forward to contributing again in 2012. If you wish to participate in 2012 by sharing your military experience or hobby, contact the lodge for more information. We thank all our veterans who served to protect our nation so we be free men and Freemasons. May God bless you all!
