The Sturgeon Bay Masonic Lodge, the Sturgeon Bay Order of the Eastern Star and the Wisconsin Masonic Foundation have donated $700 to support the Kewaunee County Food Pantry.
Through efforts such as the annual Steamboat Dinner and matching funds from the Wisconsin Masonic Fund, the organizations raise money and choose local organizations to support each year. They have also donated to the Door County Maritime Museum, Door County Social Services, Lakeshore CAP, Destination Imagination, Clipper Zone Fitness Fund and Sevastopol town parks. Donations for 2019 exceed $5,000.“Building better communities and stronger families is one of the tenets of Masonry,” said Lodge Master William Schafer. “The public support of our Steamboat Dinner enables much of this outreach.”
