Le Pont / Bridging receives donation from Hudson Masonic Lodge 98
One of the best qualities of residents of the town of Hudson is their willingness to support their local charities. Le Pont Bridging, a local food bank that has been in existence for 18 years, is one of those very important charities. Every month during the year, Carol Laws and her team of eight dedicated volunteers help feed approximately 30 needy persons, families and children who live in Hudson and neighboring communities.
“So little information is known about our work,” said Laws. “We receive phone call requests or we follow up based on local knowledge. We make up our food content packages based on these needs and we then encourage our clients to come and make a pick up, but if this is not possible, we can also make deliveries.” Carol continued by saying, “The cash contributions that we receive are important as well, because we use that money to purchase fresh groceries, especially milk and vegetables for the children.”
On Friday, January 2, Carol Laws the founder and President of Le Pont / Bridging, came to Hudson Masonic Lodge # 98 to receive a cheque for $1,200 from Very Worshipful Brother Michael Keys the Worshipful Master during 2014. In her reply Laws stated, “We are so grateful for this contribution and the ongoing support that we receive from local groups and private contributors.”
Each year the master of Hudson Lodge chooses a charity that the Brethren support by their monthly attendance, their social events, and their unending generosity, so it was very fitting that Mike Keys nominated Le Pont / Bridging as the lodge’s charity during his term of office in 2014. We believe that Hudson’s Masonic Lodge still has a particular place in the history of the Town of Hudson and its surrounding area.
It is good to see that men of good will are still attracted by our lodge and its generous Masonic precepts, that of offering a non-religious, non-political, fraternal organization, which offers personal growth and a new spiritual base. Hudson Lodge will be having its annual Curling Bonspiel Dinner on Saturday, January 31, at Whitlock Golf and Country Club, 128, Côte St-Charles, Hudson Heights. We welcome your attendance and for more information please call Graham Campbell at (450) 458-2181.
