Kansas Masonic Foundation Supports Local Kansas Masonic Lodge With School District Donation

Meridan, Kansas (September 29, 2023)—The Kansas Masonic Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to benefitting Kansas communities, has partnered with Mayetta Lodge No. 393 to donate $3,000 to Royal Valley Schools and Jefferson Elementary School. 

Founded in 1911, Mayetta Lodge No. 393 is a Kansas Masonic lodge dedicated to Freemasonry, the oldest surviving fraternal organization in the world. The lodge has over 240 members and supports various community organizations and events, including supporting the Mayetta Pioneer Days, providing books and school supplies to children in need, and helping with the local high school After Prom activities. The lodge has previously aided in building a spray park in Mayetta to help individuals with complex personal, medical, or financial problems and allows the local American Legion and Eastern Star to utilize their building for meetings and activities.  

“There are significant numbers of students who receive breakfast and lunch at school, which often is their only meal for the day,” said Mayetta Lodge No. 393 Treasurer Jerry Crumpton. “Many do not have the funds to pay for their lunches. By donating to the district office, our lodge can help pay the lunch bills of students in any of the Royal Valley Schools.”

To continue supporting local youth, the Brothers at Mayetta Lodge No. 393 have teamed up with the Kansas Masonic Foundation to donate $3,000 to be split equally between Royal Valley Schools and Jefferson Elementary School. The funds donated will provide school lunches for children whose families cannot afford the cost of the school lunch program. This year, a pass-the-hat activity helped the lodge collect funds to donate to the various organizations. A formal donation presentation will be made to the school in the coming weeks.
