Kansas Masonic Foundation Supports Local Kansas Masonic Lodge With Flag Fund Donation
Girard, Kansas (May 27, 2022)—The Kansas Masonic Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to benefitting Kansas communities, has partnered with Girard Lodge No. 93 to donate $815 to the Girard Area Chamber of Commerce, an organization dedicated to helping local businesses and promoting city events.
Founded in 1870, Girard Lodge No. 93 is a Kansas Masonic lodge dedicated to Freemasonry, the oldest surviving fraternal organization in the world. The lodge has 41 members and supports various organizations and events, including the local high school After Prom Party, the Senior Center, and more.
“We strive to help men become better men,” said Girard Lodge No. 93 Secretary Wallace Simmons. “We also try to better the community in which we live.”
Furthering their mission of bettering the local community, the Brothers at Girard Lodge No. 93 have teamed up with the Kansas Masonic Foundation to provide a monetary donation of $815 to the Girard Area Chamber of Commerce Flag Fund. The funds donated will help replace the large American flag on the east side of town near the American Legion. Due to weathering, the flag requires a replacement throughout the year, and the Brothers at Girard Lodge No. 93 believe this is a great way to show support for their country and community. A formal donation announcement will take place in the coming weeks.
