During its October Stated Meeting, Members of George M. Dallas Lodge No. 531 agreed to make a $500 donation to Valley Lodge No. 499, West Pittston, which sustained flood damage this past September. Valley Lodge’s finished basement was ruined as well as furniture and cooking and heating equipment. Members are in the midst of cleaning the basement and assessing the damage.
Brother Jim Byers presented the $500 donation to Members of Valley Lodge No. 499 during their recent Stated Meeting which was held at Wyoming Lodge No. 468, Wyoming, due to the circumstances. Wyoming Lodge has offered the use of its facilities to Lodge 499 and Masons from other Lodges have donated time, materials, and funds to help Valley Lodge with its recovery.
