Lodi Valley Masons in Susie the Duck Parade

Freemasons from Lodi Valley Lodge No. 99 participated in the Susie the Duck Day parade on August 12th in Lodi.

Lodge Brethren tossed out six 5-gallon pails of candy to children (and the young at heart) who lined the streets. The Lodge also sponsored the Zor Mavericks Scooter Patrol and the Zor Midgets Car Patrol in the parade.

The tractor in the photo above is a 1953 Super H, owned by the family of Master Roger Haarklau. 

Earlier this summer, we reported that the Lodge Brothers donated bats to their local youth baseball team and donated two additional Fire Suppression Tools (FSTs) to the Lodi and Dane Fire Departments, making four total FST donations by the Lodge. The first two they donated went to Black Earth and Mazomanie fire departments, both of which had Masonic Lodges which merged with Lodi several years back.
