Fraternal Archway Honors Cancer Survivors

During this year’s Relay for Life in Punxsutawney, Bro. Harry G. Bodenhorn, P.M., Junior Warden, John W. Jenks Lodge No. 534, West Grove, proudly escorted 12-year-old Alexa Bleu Amundson, a cancer survivor, under the archway of swords formed by members of the local Knights of Columbus chapter and John W. Jenks Lodge.

When the Knights of Columbus asked the Masons for assistance forming the archway last year, the Masons gladly stepped forward to help. Many of the brethren also walked in the Relay for Life, which raised an estimated $70,000 this year.

Cooperation between the Knights and Masons during the past two years at the Relay for Life continues to reinforce the work of the fraternities within the Punxsutawney community.
