Kansas Masonic Foundation Supports Local Kansas Masonic Lodge With Veterans Memorial Donation

Minneapolis, Kansas (October 28, 2022)—The Kansas Masonic Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to benefiting Kansas communities, has partnered with Minneapolis Lodge No. 143 to donate $5,000 to the Ottawa County Veterans Memorial. 

Founded in 1873, Minneapolis Lodge No. 143 is a Kansas Masonic lodge dedicated to Freemasonry, the oldest surviving fraternal organization in the world. The lodge has 24 members and is active in the local community, including providing scholarships to local high school students, contributing to the Grand Lodge Essay Contest, and hosting cancer screenings in collaboration with the Masonic Cancer Alliance. The loge also regularly supports the Rock City Park, the Ottawa County Fair, the Golden Wheel Senior Center, and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. 

“Our Brothers are dedicated to leadership and community service,” said Minneapolis Lodge No. 143 Master Mark Renfrow. “The Ottawa County Veterans Memorial helps honor all veterans in our community.”

To further their mission of bettering the local community, the Brothers at Minneapolis Lodge No. 143 have teamed up with the Kansas Masonic Foundation to provide a monetary donation of $5,000 to the Ottawa County Veterans Memorial. The funds donated will help fund a much-needed war memorial to honor all veterans of the past, present, and future. A formal donation announcement will take place before November 15, 2022.
