A Shout Out of Gratitude to the Whitewater Community from St. John’s Masonic Lodge

(Press release from St. John’s Masonic Lodge)
A message of gratitude:

One of the iconic buildings in downtown Whitewater is the Masonic Temple at 226 W Main St.
The building was erected in 1904 and has been home to several Masonic organizations over the years. Recently, the building has been in severe need of a roof replacement. This year, that was accomplished by very generous donations from the Kachel family, and from Mr. James Caldwell. Jon, Larry and Mike Kachel and Jim Caldwell are all long term members of St. John’s Lodge. The lodge extends our deepest gratitude to these fine Masonic Brothers.

With the Covid pandemic, many organizations are suffering from lack of funds. This year, the lodge had to omit our spring dinner fundraiser, which funds a significant part of our annual budget. We had a carry out only dinner on November 17th. The outpouring of support from the Whitewater community for this fundraiser was overwhelming! The lodge would like to thank everyone who purchased dinners.

Finally, within the membership of St. John’s Lodge, many donated significant cash contributions and/or volunteer time for fundraising. Our gratitude to all.

Despite difficult times, our organization has had a great year, thanks to all the support from this great community.
