Kansas Masonic Foundation Supports Local Kansas Masonic Lodge With Historical Society Donation

Lyndon, Kansas (March 21, 2022)—The Kansas Masonic Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to benefiting Kansas communities, has partnered with Euclid Lodge No. 101 to donate $1,000 to the Osage County Historical Society, an organization housing a collection of artifacts donated primarily by former and present residents of Osage County.

Founded in 1871, Euclid Lodge No. 101 is a Kansas Masonic lodge dedicated to Freemasonry, the oldest surviving fraternal organization in the world. The lodge has over 50 members and supports various local organizations, including the Help House in Lyndon, Kansas, and the Osage County Historical Society. 

“At Euclid Lodge No. 101, our mission is to support local organizations in their endeavors to encourage civic pride and educate students on their local history,” said Euclid Lodge No. 101 Secretary Paul Oldham. “We recognize a need to provide a historical depository of records and history of Osage County residents and events, which is why we have decided to donate to the Osage County Historical Society.”

Furthering their mission of supporting local organizations, the Brothers at Euclid Lodge No. 101 have teamed up with the Kansas Masonic Foundation to provide a monetary donation of $1,000 to the Osage County Historical Society. The organization represents the wide variety of historic, economic, cultural, and ethnic aspects of Osage County, Kansas, from early settlement in the 1850s onward. The funds donated will support the society’s various educational programs, encourage community pride, and focus on youth awareness of Osage County’s history. Additionally, the funds will support “Trunk Programs,” aide with various field trips, and provide a source of funding to compensate schools for the use of busses. An official donation announcement will take place in the coming months.
