One of the greatest attributes of our Masonic Fraternity is to come to the aid of worthy and distressed Master Masons, their widows, and orphans.
This is exactly what the Brethren of Flushing Masonic Lodge #298 located in the 23rd Masonic district have done! They have teamed up with the Scio Sportsman’s Club to double up on the aid they can give to Brethren in need! Flushing Secretary Jon Lovejoy contacted the Grand Lodge of Ohio and notified them through the proper channels that Brother Chad Dulkowski had lost his house in a fire a short time before. The Grand Lodge Charitable Foundation then issued a check along with the monies raised by Flushing Lodge and the Scio Sportsman’s Club joint fundraiser.
Many other local churches, individuals, and organizations contributed to the Dulkowski family! Whether it was in the form of a donation of clothes, household goods, monetary donations, or just a shoulder to lean on, the community came together and helped the Dulkowski family as they were temporarily relocated to Cadiz, Ohio.
Well done to the brothers of Flushing Lodge and the community of Flushing for stepping up to take care of one of their own! It truly does take all of us to make this world a better place!
