One of the many charitable activities Pewee Valley Lodge is involved in is, the awarding of bicycles to local elementary school students.  The winners receive the bicycles for various achievements at their schools, such as good grades, perfect attendance, good citizenship etc.  Above is one our winners from Harmony Elementary school in Goshen, Kentucky.  The Lodge takes great pride in being able to offer these awards to local schools and really enjoys being able to help our local kids!

Below is a note from the counselor at Harmony Elementary:

"Pewee Valley Masonic Lodge,

Harmony Elementary would like to extend our sincerest thank yous for the generous gift card to Walmart. Today, one of our students was gifted with the bike donated by your organization. This student has worked incredibly hard this year and was over the moon when he received this gift.

Thank you, again. Please enjoy the pictures."

Past Master Phil Griffin was recently awarded with a Mason of the Month Award by 2017 Master Tom Ruby.  Brother Phil has been making, custom made gavels for the Lodge for many years.  Not only are these gavels functional, but also, individual works of art.  The Lodge (and the Brothers) greatly appreciate Bro. Phil's hardwork, craftsmanship and dedication to the Lodge!

The Lodge has been busy this year so far!  We've worked on purchasing bicycles for donations to the local elementary schools.  We've had many discussions on raising funds for other events and during our last meeting, we had the privilege of passing two Brothers to the Fellow Craft Degree!  Congratulations to Brothers Dennis Hornback and Matt Henderson on advancing to the the next step in Masonry!

Thanks to all the Brothers of Pewee Valley Lodge who worked hard to make this happen!

One of the many things brothers of Masonry excel at, is helping other brothers in distress.  Recently, a few brothers from the Lodge got together to help out another who downed trees from past storms.  The brothers had a good time and were able to help another out.  This is just one of many things members of Masonry do!

Lots of great things happening in the Lodge this year!  We just had a Brother receive his 50 year pin, and the current Worshipful Master has been keeping up with the tradition started last year of awarding a "Mason of the Month" award to various Brothers who go above and beyond to assist the Lodge in various functions.  We just had our District 17 meeting and the Masonic Great Day of Service, and for our next meeting, we will be conferring the Fellow Craft degree on two Brothers!
