On December 15th we supported this program. We made a significant donation and had about 30 or 35 people help place wreaths on graves of veterans. Unfortunately I couldn't get a group shot of everybody as some people were arriving and leaving at different times. We even had brand new entered apprentices help out.
We are very proud to be a sponsor of Wreaths Across America. Lodge members and family will also be volunteers assisting with laying the wreaths.
We are surrounded by the history of our nation here in Massachusetts. We were able to view some of that history today as we placed wreaths on the graves of the many veterans at Mount Wallaston Cemetery. We also were able to see many square and compasses. These pictures are just a handful.
Another successful event for Rural Lodge and the Quincy Lions. We did a joint Eye Screening for kids 6 months to 6 years old, all free as always. You can see Rural's new Master Patrick Shelton being show how the Camera works and a few of the over 16 children who had their eyes examined by this amazing technology.
On Tue, 9.25, Paul F. Gleason, Grand Master of Masons of MA, Patrick J. Shelton, Master of Rural Lodge, and the Honorable Thomas P. Koch, Mayor of Quincy, MA took part in a groundbreaking ceremony for the Lodge's new home.
