To the Editor,

On behalf of Masonic Lodge #38 I would like to reach out to the community with information about what we do and how we support our town, state, and neighbors in need.

Each year graduating seniors at Twin Valley, Burr and Burton, and Leland & Gray are awarded scholarships toward their higher education.

We contribute to the Deerfield Food Panty by the purchase of equipment, and food, and offering manpower at the site.

Deerfield Valley Cares also receives financial support from our lodge throughout the year as needed.

The Poole Learning Center provides professional literacy instruction and support to students with learning differences, their families, and their educators, and receives financial support from our local Masonic Lodge.

Other events include the sponsorship of the Easter egg event, parade participation, and donations to other civic and educational projects in the area. We hold regular bingo nights at the lodge (thanks to Brother Bob Fagge and his crew for a job well done). Money raised along with membership dues and other financial grants goes to fund these local projects.

Are you a male over the age of 18 who cares about rising to the highest and best level of life? The local Masonic organization here in Wilmington is always looking for new members. Freemasonry is a charitable, benevolent, educational, and religious society. We are ready to welcome new members and hope you will consider becoming involved.

If you are interested call Social Lodge, care of the secretary Peter Barton, at (802) 464-0019 for more information or by email at

Peter Barton
