The Washington Meredith Masonic Lodge held it's annual award presentations on Friday, August 4, 2017 in Brownsville. The Lodge presented two ECHS graduates with a $500 scholarship each during the ceremony.
Both Alyssa Brooks, daughter of Brad and LuWanda Brooks of Windyville, and Cierra Woodcock, daughter of Jason and Carey Woodcock of Bee Spring accepted the scholarships at the lodge during the family event.
The Lodge also gave a generous $1000 donation to Santa's Secret Hands during the presentation. The funds were raised during their recent fish fry, held on the square. SSH directors Mark and Lorrie Wardlow accepted the check on behalf of the organization.
The Lodge participates in several local charity causes each year and is currently working on a bicycle donation project for each local elementary school as a reward for perfect attendance.
