District Masonic Youth Department held a weekend of fun, food and fellowship for the Mary L. Fair Gleaner Branch #137, Elizabeth M. Tilley Gleaner Branch #68, Harry D. Hayes Council #122 and Thayer E. Tyson Council #146 Knights of Pythagoras.

This event was sponsored by the 30th District Masonic family.

The Youth Department currently consists of 40 youth ranging in ages from 8-18 years old. On Friday, Aug. 24, the Gleaners and Supervisors went bowling at Northside Bowling Alley, which gave the girls the opportunity to interact with each other outside of their monthly meetings.

On Saturday, Aug. 25, a Back to School Event was held for the Gleaners and Knights at the Masonic Hall in which there was music, food, ice cream bar and raffles. At the end of the evening, each youth received a canvas container of school supplies, which consisted of notebook paper, composition books, loose leaf paper, pens, pencils, crayons, colored pencils, markers, mechanical pencils, glue sticks, 3 ring binder, index cards, ruler and folders.

The Gleaners and Knights meet monthly at the Masonic Hall. “Our goal is aimed at teaching youth good citizenship, respect for themselves; and others, the values of charity and benevolence, the virtues of a wholesome life, and to help them develop into well rounded adults, all the while promoting moral and religious conduct. We hope that in some way, we can help to prepare them to face the problems of today’s youth in a peaceful manner,” the group said in a press release.

For more information on the Youth Department, contact anyone with the Masonic family. Willie Stancell serves as adviser for the Knights of Pythagoras. Hattie B. Fulton is the 30th District Gleaner youth adviser.
