FREEMASONS TIM YATES

A group of Freemasons from the three Comox Valley lodges were proud to sponsor and assist in bringing a Thanksgiving dinner to our community’s neediest.

The meal was sponsored Oct. 20 at St. George’s United Church in Courtenay by Masons who consider contributing to the community

an important part of being a Freemason.

Many thanks to Courtenay Safeway for providing the turkeys at cost and to Safeway’s Rob Clark for deboning and preparation. Turkeys were cooked and sliced by the Comox Valley Recovery Centre. Buns were supplied by the Comox Valley Bakehouse (David Thompson and Sonya).

Brian Thorould and the cooking staff at St. George’s Church were big contributors, too. All in all, a great team effort.

The Comox Valley Freemasons are proud to help in this initiative. When asked why the Masons were doing this, one Mason replied, “Because, that is what we do.”
