Chicago Area Mason Lodges Collect Water For Flint

 

 

Thanks to Worshipful Brother Scott Dueball of DC Cregier Lodge for giving us the opportunity to help donate to the cause of raising money for water to assist families in Flint, MI currently without clean water.

Brothers of Constellation Lodge 974 voted to donate to the cause.  WB Dueball could only fit so much water in his already heavily packed vehicle, so the lodge was only billed for what  he could fit even though more was raised and will be donated via other means.  Over 20 cases of bottled water were donated, as part of a matching grant offered by Howard Buick and GMC dealerships.
The Daily Herald made mention of the donations by DC Cregier, Constellation Lodge and Des Plaines Lodge in this article.
Good work brethren!

Thursday nights are usually a night of fellowship or ceremony for the D.C. Cregier Masonic Lodge in Wheeling. This past Thursday was a night to celebrate the ideology of charity, a strong cornerstone of Masonic teachings. The brethren of D.C. Cregier and Constellation Lodge 974, Des Plaines, collected more than 80 donated cases of bottled water for shipment to Flint, Michigan, through Howard Buick-GMC in Elmhurst. Howard Buick-GMC committed to matching case for case donations to help those in need.
