Lodi Valley Freemasons donate $1000 to local EMS

Our Brothers at Lodi Valley Freemasons Lodge have been busy — again!

After recently partnering with the Lodi Area Youth Baseball and Softball to be a GOLD sponsor of the youth athletics group, they have also made $1000 worth of year-end donations to two local Emergency Medical Services (EMS) groups.

First, the Brothers Karl Markgraf and Roger Haarklau (in the photo directly above) delivered a check for $500 to the Lodi EMS along with a message of appreciation for their first responders: “Thank you for your service to our community!”

Just a couple of days later, the Brothers gathered again to present another $500 to the Mazomanie/Black Earth EMS. The Brothers of Lodi have a history of supporting the Mazomanie and Black Earth areas as both municipalities previously had Masonic Lodges which, over the years, merged with Lodi Valley.
