Current subscribers have been mailed or emailed a renewal notice for the 2017 calendar year along with a letter of thanks from the Masonic Lodge for helping local Masons to provide $6,000 in scholarships to local Salado High graduates, purchasing bikes to donate to the Salado Family Relief Fund Christmas project and supporting Masonic charities.
“Salado Masonic Lodge has been a part of the Village of Salado for 150 years,” Worshipful Master Brian Arnett said. “We have funded and supported countless community projects during this time. Over the last few years Masons have raised funds for the Salado Band, Salado One Act Play, Salado Choir, Salado Soccer Team, books for the Elementary Library, Dental Hygiene packets for first graders, Take Time to Read program for the Elementary and Middle Schools, upgrading the Civic Center, building paths and cleaning up on College Hill, among many other ventures.”
