Two years ago, Eloise Hadden didn’t know how she was going to get the three and a half acre lot mowed behind the Auburn Museum. She had tried to hire people to mow, but there was just no money to do it. When Hadden thought there was no hope, the Auburn Masonic Lodge stepped up to help.
James Stamps, secretary of the Auburn Lodge, and his friend Leroy Roberson come out to the museum and mow the lot when it’s needed.
“They’ve been a blessing,” said Hadden. “We attempted to hire, but there was just no money. They came and asked would we like their help and it was like music to my ears.”
Hadden said not only are they wonderful for the Auburn Historical Society, but anytime they see a need, there is a Mason there to help you out.
Stamps said the Masons of Auburn Lodge do things in the community when no one else will. He said if there is anything good in the community, they are behind it. The Lodge is connected with human resources, the humane society, the museum and many more organizations in Auburn.
“This is something much bigger than I’ll ever be,” said Stamps. “When someone can look across the universe and see how insignificant they are, that’s when they become a Master Mason.”
Last year, the Auburn Lodge celebrated 150 years of service and dedication the the city of Auburn.
