Mariposa Masonic Lodge Supports Local Charities

(Mariposa, CA) On Saturday November 20th, at their annual Thanksgiving meal, the members of the Mariposa Masonic Lodge #24 donated $4000 to two local charities. Kops for Kids and Coats for Kids each received $2000. Present at the annual meal to receive the donation for Kops for Kids was Mariposa County Sheriff Doug Binneweis and, Deputies Jake Bobman and Jeff Totten. Representing Coats for Kids was Pauline Totten of Mercy Ambulance. Kops for Kids will use the donation to purchase Christmas Gifts for children of families in distress. Coats for Kids ensures that the children in our community have winter coats.

For over 150 years, the Mariposa Lodge has contributed to the community in various ways. As an example, in addition to this charitable work, the lodge provides annual scholarships to local high school seniors. Indeed, in addition to the regular scholarships this year, the Grand Masonic Lodge of California awarded a $10,000 scholar to one of our local seniors.

In other Lodge news, annual elections were held on the same night and William Keller (Mariposa) was elected Master of the lodge for next year; Charles Kendell (Mariposa) was elected Senior Warden; and, Raymond Foster (San Dimas) was elected Junior Warden.
