During this time of Thanksgiving, it’s important to remember those about our globe who need our help. One such issue has been brought to my attention by WB Alvin Benimerito of Long Pine Lodge No. 136. Some of you may know Alvin from his work for the Grand Lodge, Eastern Star and his great work at Long Pine. Alvin is originally from the town of Bogo, Cebu in the Philippines. It’s a small, poor village that has recently been devastated by a hurricane. The pictures of the area and stories that are available on the Internet are shocking. This village relies primarily on the fishing trade and the hurricane has destroyed the local fleet of fishing boats. Alvin has taken action and has set up Project Go Fish to raise funds to help replace the lost fishing boats. Attached is the information on the project and I would ask that you consider a donation to this project.
