Holiday project in demand for Masons

emann@pvdemocrat.com — There are certain holiday traditions so much a part of the season that they become an essential annual ritual, be it family entertainment options or even charities for a worthwhile cause.

Returning in the latter category for 2012 and reminder of how much good results, is the Pauls Valley Masonic Lodge No. 6 pecan fundraiser, popular both for good product and impact.

Though member David Jones has only done it a few times out of the six or so years around, he recognizes the wide reaching importance that has helped from buying impoverished kids glasses to a little something extra for the Oklahoma Food Bank.

“I just like to see the lodge gathering all we can for charity work,” said Jones.

“We work very closely with prevention of blindness in Oklahoma. If we can find anything in the community we can help with, we do.”

One of the biggest impacts since the charity started selling the shelled treat was a $4,000 check they were able to present to the Rush Creek Fire Department last year, said Jones.

It’s helped along by the Masonic Charity Foundation, which matches whatever they raise and it has also done quite a bit of good for schools through scholarships for students or grants for teachers.

Available until they sell out or at least until Christmas is over, they are harvested from orchards in Texas and sell at $15 for a 1 pound bag.

They can be purchased from several locations in town including the PV Chamber of Commerce as well as Legacy Drug and if one calls the Mason office they can even deliver if called far enough ahead.

“One lady liked them so much, she came down from Oklahoma City and bought 25 bags,” said Jones. “I’m just a retired social worker and I continue to work.”

For more information contact the Masons at 405-238-5113.
