On Monday, February 28th, at a Special Communication of St. Mark’s Lodge the members welcomed their newest Master Mason, Brother Jeremiah Allen.
Brother Allen joins other members of his family that were Masons and to commemorate the event, Wor. Richard Perry presented him with a ring and masonic working tools which had belonged to grandfathers on both sides of his family.
Be sure to take a moment and congratulate Bro. Allen when you see him next.
While charity isn’t something that only happens at the holidays, St. Mark’s Lodge continued a long tradition of presenting donations to local organizations during its annual Christmas Tree Sales Event.
Those involved with this year’s presentation are pictured above, from left are Fred Davila, St. Mark’s; Marilyn Olbricht of Sonshine Soup Kitchen; David McClane, St. Mark’s; Julie Levesque, Community Caregivers of Greater Derry; George Chapman, St. Mark’s; Cathy DiCampo, Derry News Santa Fund; and Judy Jurentkuff of the First Baptist Church Food Pantry.
Many thanks to these organizations for all the do to help the community and those in need.
