Alberni Freemasons help with Read and Feed

Each year Euclid Lodge # 158 members in Alberni invite their neighbours, friends and relatives to their annual fundraising loonie/toonie

Each year the members of Euclid Lodge # 158 in Port Alberni invite their neighbours, friends and relatives to their annual fundraising loonie/toonie night.

It was decided by lodge members that each year they would take a portion of the funds raised and return them back into the local area.

This year their choice was to help the Alberni Valley Neighbour Link Society which runs their “Read and Feed” program for the elementary schools in Port Alberni.

On Oct. 9, WM W Bro. Ralph Rayner, RW Bro. Ron Yates DDGM District No. 22 (who is also a member of Euclid Lodge), RW Bro. Andy Murray Past DDGM District No. 5 and current director of ceremonies at Euclid Lodge, IPM W.

Bro. Sandy McRuer attended the “Read and Feed Program” at Alberni Valley Elementary School.

There, they and were put to work at 7:45 a.m. by the volunteers: cooking toast, pouring juice, cutting cheese and cucumbers and preparing the tables and chairs.

At 8:15 a.m. the children attending the program started to arrive and by 8:45 a.m., 62 children had enjoyed a breakfast and books being read to them.

Prior to the bell ringing for classes, Euclid Lodge members presented a cheque in the amount of $500 to help the “Read and Feed” program continue their daily breakfast initiative.

Amongst all of this was RW Bro. Bill Allen Past DDGM District No. 5, who volunteers with the “Read and feed “ program.
