On Feb. 27, members of Lodi Lodge No. 256 Free and Accepted Masons delivered 1,240 donated books to Reese Elementary School. The books were gathered by members of the lodge to augment the in-classroom libraries of the school.
This is the fourth such book drive by lodge members, and to date a total of over 5,000 books have been donated to Lodi area elementary schools. The project was developed by lodge member Shawn McCarty. All California Masonic lodges support public education and this is just one example of their desire to improve the quality of public schools.
