Local Masons from St. John’s 21a Lodge in Vankleek Hill, represented by Worshipful Master Colvin Smith, presented $500 to the Reverend James Douglas, who accepted on behalf of the Vankleek Hill Food Bank, at their December 2018 meeting. The Masons meet in space located above the library in Vankleek Hill and have been collecting nonperishable food, clothing to support the Vankleek Hill Food Bank for several years now. The food bank is one of several charities supported by the local Masons throughout the year. Masons bring nonperishable food and gently used clothing to each meeting during the year and in addition, cash donations are collected during the meetings.
The St. John’s 21a Lodge is celebrating its 175th anniversary in Champlain Township in Eastern Ontario and members see it as their responsibility to contribute to the local community. More information on the lodge and how to become a member can be found on the following web sites: https://grandlodge.on.ca/ and https://easterndistrictmasons.wordpress.com/
While you are here, we have a small ask.
More people are reading The Review than ever before — across our many platforms. So far, we have not put up a paywall to limit the stories you can read. We want to keep you in the news loop. But advertising revenues are increasingly going to the big two: you know who they are. If you value The Review’s independent, local community journalism, or you value the many ways we support dozens of community organizations in their endeavours, consider supporting our work. It takes time, effort and professional smarts to stay on top of community news and present well-researched, objective news articles on issues which matter to you.
If you read stories on this website, or you have come here from an Instant Article post on Facebook, think about subscribing. It would be a vote of confidence for the work that we do, and for the future well-being of your community.
