Constructing Community Goodwill

Several Masons from District 2 spent several days during May, June and July to construct a home on 18th Street in Harrisburg through Habitat for Humanity. The brethren asked Pilgrim Chapter Order of DeMolay to come out one Saturday to make lunch for the crew. The young men came out in full force, grilling hot dogs and sausages. Afterward, everyone pitched in to clear rocks and brush from the side yard to prepare for planting grass the next day.

A pergola was recently constructed at the Franklin County Extension Wildlife area for use by Boy and Girl Scout groups, nursing home residents and area garden clubs for meetings and educational activities. The project was made possible by George Washington Masonic Lodge No. 143, Chambersburg. Built by Bro. Jay Wentling, the lodge's Junior Deacon, the pergola is a project of the Franklin County Master Gardners.
