Kansas Masonic Foundation Supports Local Kansas Masonic Lodge With Wreaths Across America Donation

Girard, Kansas (September 16, 2022)—The Kansas Masonic Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to benefitting Kansas communities, has partnered with Girard Lodge No. 93 to donate $300 to Wreaths Across America, an organization that coordinates wreath­-laying ceremonies at more than 2,500 locations across the United States.

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 40 members and supports various organizations and events in the community, including the local high school After Prom Party, the Senior Center, the Chamber of Commerce Flag Fund, and the High School Marching Band Camp.

“Wreaths Across America is committed to teaching younger generations the value of their freedom and the importance of honoring those who sacrificed so much to protect those freedoms,” said Girard Lodge No. 93 Secretary Wallace Simmons. “They offer learning tools, interactive media projects, and opportunities for local Brother schools, 4-H clubs, Scouts, and other youth groups to participate in these efforts.”

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 $300 to Wreaths Across America. The Brothers decided to support this organization in an attempt to educate young people about the important sacrifices made by those who have served and the dedication it takes to enjoy freedom. The funds donated will ensure Fort Scott National Cemetery has sufficient wreaths on National Wreath Day, December 17, 2022. A formal donation announcement will take place in the coming weeks.
