ERATH COUNTY (October 15, 2016) – The Stephenville Masonic Lodge (Lodge No. 267) was organized in 1860 with 24 members assembling at the time including Stephenville’s founder, John M. Stephen. The club remains very active in local and statewide charities, the Scottish Rite Hospital, and Masonic Children and Family Services as well as providing scholarships for SHS students.
This fine volunteer organization held a blood drive at the lodge this Saturday, which produced 19 units. The group also held a breakfast gathering and $165 was accepted in donations to be made to the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. It was a very successful blood drive. Keep up the good work, guys!
