Shoes for Kids
Our semi-annual waffle breakfast is fast approaching. 
Twice a year (Oct & May) Helion Lodge #36 sponsors a Super Belgium Waffle Breakfast.  These breakfasts help us raise money for local charities (Community Cupboard), local events (after prom parties, graduation), supporting our community (shoes for kids) and many more worthy recipients. We served 343 people at our last breakfast. Come out and support our next breakfast in Oct.

Worshipful Master Note:
Support of the American Public School System has been a cardinal teaching of the Masonic Fraternity from its very inception.  To reflect
this belief, the Masons of Iowa established an Iowa Masonic Scholarship Endowment Fund.  This is the 41st year that Iowa Masons have presented scholarships to graduates of Iowa’s public high schools. Scholarships are based on Leadership, Community Activities & Involvement, Academic Record and Need.
Thanks to the support and generosity of Iowa masons, this year, 60 students (out of over 900 applicants) were awarded scholarships in
the amount of $2,000 in July.
On behalf of over 23,000 Iowa Masons, I was pleased to present a scholarship to Emily England of Andrew High School. 
Congratulations Emily and continue to do well in School.
There is a 2nd Degree @ Helion.
