Goodland, Kansas (July 30, 2021)—The Kansas Masonic Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to benefiting Kansas communities, has partnered with Goodland Lodge No. 321 to provide a $500 donation to the Carnegie Arts Council, an independent, nonprofit community-supported art center located in rural western Kansas.
Founded in 1889, Goodland Lodge No. 321 is a Kansas Masonic lodge dedicated to Freemasonry, the oldest surviving fraternal organization in the world. The lodge has 80 members and supports numerous local causes, including local children’s and summer programs, Boy and Girl Scouts of America, the community hospital and library, the annual Masonic Fish Fry, various Kansas Shrine functions, and the Order of the Eastern Star. Goodland Lodge No. 321 is also a regular supporter of the Goodland Public Library, donating $500 annually to help fund the children’s summer reading program.
“Our Brothers provide extensive charitable work within our community annually,” said Goodland Lodge No. 231 Secretary James Alcorn. “This year’s donation to the Carnegie Arts Council will help support the children’s summer reading program.”
To further their mission of providing extensive charitable work within the community, the Brothers at Goodland Lodge No. 321 have teamed up with the Kansas Masonic Foundation to provide a monetary donation of $500 to the Carnegie Arts Council. The funds donated will help purchase necessary art supplies and books for children to help support the summer reading program. An official donation announcement previously took place on May 21, 2021.
