||As Freemasons, the Brothers of Howard Lodge No. 101 are taught from the very beginning that one of our core values is to look after one another and our families. More than 20 years ago, the Lodge created a program to extend the hand of fellowship and guidance to the widow of a Master Mason, specifically to let her know that she is remembered, not forgotten, and that she continues to belong to our Masonic Family.
Each year throughout late December, Brothers traverse across the State of Maryland distributing holiday cards and boxes of candy to all surviving widows of our departed Brethren. This year 73 packages were delivered, much to recipients delight. It is through programs such as this that the Masonic Family of Howard Lodge No. 101 truly shines; lending a hand when needed, providing happiness and joy during the holiday season, and brightening the day for those who are in our thoughts.
