Southern Tier Masonic District Helps Fill Local Food Banks


Freemasons belonging to the Lodges of the Southern Tier donated food and money to 10 local food pantries this week as part of a statewide effort by the Grand Lodge of New York to assist local providers in caring for area residents impacted by the COVID crisis.  District officers along with leaders and members of local lodges delivered approximately $3000 worth of food and other donations to the following:

St. Patrick’s in Binghamton

Mother Teresa’s Cupboard in Endicott

All Saints Food Pantry in Johnson City

Windsor, Oxford, Norwich, Sherburne, Deposit, Greene and Bainbridge area food pantries

Masonry, the world’s oldest and largest fraternity, is an organization that accepts members of all races and religions.  The nearly 2 million Freemasons in the United States give almost $1.5  million dollars a day to various charities.  The Southern Tier District is home to 11 Masonic Lodges and approximately one thousand members.

     Freemasonry.....think about it. In the Southern Tier, we have a long history of  vibrant and active lodges.  Some with beginnings in the mid-1800's.  From Deposit  in the east, to Vestal in the west then north to Oxford and New Berlin - you will  find one our 13 lodges that make up the district, right in your neighborhood.

     If you have ever wondered who we are, we are teachers, salesmen, lawyers,  laborers, business owners, engineers, etc; We are your neighbor. If you have ever  wondered what we do, we take good men and make them better men. How?  History, research and education. Charity, fellowship and families. What do we support? Among other things; medical  research, and kids,

     I am honored to serve as District Deputy Grand Master for the 2018-2020 term  and to work along side the balance of the Leadership Team; Nicholas Glassman,  Grand Steward; Robert Rogers, Assistant Grand Lecturer; and Mark Loughran,  Assistant Grand Lecturer.
