Kansas Masonic Foundation Supports Local Kansas Masonic Lodge With Community Library Donation

Linwood, Kansas (June 23, 2023)—The Kansas Masonic Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to benefitting Kansas communities, has partnered with Linwood Lodge No. 241 to donate $200 to the Linwood Community Library, an organization providing local community members with access to digital and printed works. The library is also dedicated to promoting literacy by offering free communal reading programs for adults and children of all ages.  

Founded in 1885, Linwood Lodge No. 241 is a Kansas Masonic lodge dedicated to Freemasonry, the oldest surviving fraternal organization in the world. The lodge has 10 members and is heavily involved in the local community, including making charitable contributions to assist others in need, specifically awarding college scholarships for graduating seniors at Basehor-Linwood High School and supporting the Linwood Community Library.  

“We contribute to the Linwood Community Library every year to enrich educational opportunities for the citizens of Linwood,” said Linwood Lodge No. 241 Secretary Howard Jones. “We have been providing support to their organization for the past eight years.” 

To help further their mission of helping individuals and organizations in need, the Brothers at Linwood Lodge No. 241 have teamed up with the Kansas Masonic Foundation to provide a monetary donation of $200 to the Linwood Community Library. The donation will help supply reading and audio materials to citizens and help prepare educational programs and activities. The funds raised by the lodge, combined with matching funds from the Kansas Masonic Foundation, will be presented before July 1, 2023.
