Lodi Valley Freemasons Go To Bat For Kids

Freemasons from Lodi Valley Lodge No. 99 in Lodi, Wisconsin donated $500 worth of T-Ball bats to the Lodi Area Youth Baseball and Softball Organization.

New bats aren’t cheap — so the Lodge made the donation to try and alleviate some costs to the parents.

The Lodi Valley Freemasons expressed their appreciation and gratitude for the volunteer coaches who make the sport possible. “Thank you to all the coaching volunteers this year! Without them there would be no developmental sports in our community!”

Their Facebook post said is best: “If you’ve ever thought about getting more active in your community or just looking to meet some good, moral, honest men there’s no time like the present to become a Freemason!” 

Just earlier this month, we reported the the Lodge Brethren donated their third and fourth Fire Suppression Tools (FST) to the Lodi and Dane Fire Departments – the other two were to the Village of Black Earth and Mazomanie Fire Departments. Both of those communities formerly had Masonic Lodges which, over time, merged with Lodi Valley. It’s truly a testament to the Masonic obligation of those Brethren who continue to make sure that the needs of those communities are also met.

Additionally, the Lodge also donated $1000 to the Lodi Fire Department, which is having a fundraiser to purchase a new rope rescue device.
