Masons support Ronald McDonald Houses

The Royal Arch Masons from Capitular District 8 North and 8 South, including Lock Haven, held their annual Christmas party and awards banquet at the Masonic Temple in Williamsport recently. Following the meal and entertainment, check presentations were made to the Danville Ronald McDonald House by the Grand Holy Royal Arch Chapter of Pennsylvania and Districts 8 North and South. Each year the chapter supports the numerous Ronald McDonald Houses in Pennsylvania, with local chapters holding fundraisers to support their local houses where families can stay while their seriously ill children undergo medical treatment.

Klinger of District 8 South; and MEGHP (Most Excellent Grand High Priest) Wayne C. Faupel of the Grand Holy Royal Arch Chapter of Pennsylvania.
