Granville Masonic Lodge When it comes to history, Granville Lodge #55 Free and Accepted Masons is second to no other local organization. The Lodge was chartered as Liberty Lodge on Dec. 7, 1796, making it the oldest organization in Granville and the oldest Masonic Lodge in Washington County. It has been part of the Granville Community for 219 years. The Lodge first met at the home of Elijah White in North Granville. In 1806, for monetary reasons, Liberty Lodge was reissued a new charter with the name Granville Lodge #55. The Lodge still holds the original Liberty Lodge charter, which was signed by notable New Yorkers such as Dewitt Clinton and Robert R. Livingston, who helped draw up the Declaration of Independence. For the first 165 years of its existence, the Granville Lodge met in 28 different places from North

Granville to Middle Granville to the village of Granville. From 1960 to 2002, the Lodge owned the former Hewett house on Quaker Street. When maintenance of the large home became too much for the organization, members sold the building and built a new structure at 97 North Street and named it the Slate Valley Masonic Center. It is also home to Sylvan Star Chapter #122. The Lodge’s new home has become an integral part of the community. The Masons have hosted a public dinner on Election Night for the past 14 years. In addition, they allow other community groups such as the Cub Scouts and the Garden Club to use their building for meetings. The building is also rented out for other functions including baby showers, bridal showers and numerous other events. To rent the building, call Michael

Angiolillo at 642-9707 or Lois Warner at 642-2724. “It’s used as a community center,” said Angiolillo, President of the Board of Directors. In the summer months, the lodge holds a chicken barbecue in Veterans Park during the Thursday night concerts. “We’ll do it again in 2016,” he said. The Granville Lodge currently has 45 members. At the peak of membership in Granville, there were more than 175 Lodge members. Anyone seeking information about becoming a member should call Master Paul Casavant at 642-1731 or Secretary Philip Humphries at 642-9499. Any man over the age of 21 can petition for membership. The Granville Lodge is part of the Free Masons, the oldest fraternal organization in the world. The club is a charitable and educational society dedicat-

ed to morality, mutual aid, charity, leadership, religious toleration and political freedom. Fourteen U.S. presidents were Freemasons, from George Washington to Bill Clinton. Several signers of the Declaration of Independence were also Freemasons. The Granville Lodge shares its building with Slate Valley Chapter #122, Order of the Eastern Star of the State of New York. The chapter was chartered in 1896. Any woman over the age of 18 or man who holds membership in the Masonic Fraternity may request a petition for membership. The Slate Valley Chapter assists the Granville Lodge in many fundraising activities. For more information about Slate Valley Chapter, call Mike Angiolillo at 6429707 or Lois Warner at 6422724.

Serving Our Community

Granville Rotary Club For more than 90 years, the Granville Rotary Club has been an active organization in the Granville community, providing service ranging from youth projects to health and the environment. The 25-member club continually aims to fulfill Rotary International’s slogan of “Service above self,” said Granville Rotary President Amy Nelson. At the local level, the club participates in Granville’s annual Clean-up Day. The club also holds a “Warm the Children” spaghetti dinner to help raise funds to purchase warm clothing for local children. Nelson said that the Granville Rotary awards an annual scholarship to a gradu-

ating senior who has demonstrated service through their volunteer work in the community. Another yearly Rotary project is the conducting of mock interviews with high school seniors. “It helps them prepare for real world interviews, whether for employment or college,” Nelson said. The club is also known for the distribution of dictionaries to third graders each year. “We also do a Purple Pinky Day for polio awareness,” said Nelson. Each year, the club holds a day in which in return for a $1 donation, elementary school students get their pinky finger painted purple. The “purple pinky” represents Rotary’s dedica-

“We are looking for community projects that we can help out with,” Nelson said, “whether monetarily or through time and effort.” At the global level, Rotary International focuses on disease eradication (especially polio), promoting peace, clean drinking water, saving mothers and children around the world, and promoting education and the local economy. Rotary International has 1.2 million members around the world. The Granville Rotary Club meets every Wednesday at 5:45 p.m. at AJ’s Restaurant. Anyone wishing to learn more about the club or how to become a member can call Amy Nelson at 518-932-4246.

tion to the eradication of polio, she explained. One event that gets the entire community involved is the club’s annual Trivia Night, which attracts a few hundred trivia fans who enter into a goodnatured competition to raise funds for Rotary projects. This year’s Trivia Contest is slated for Jan. 30 at the Granville Hook and Ladder. Granville Rotary also sponsors Red Cross blood drives each year. Every other year, the club brings the Kelly Circus to town to entertain local families and children. Even with all these activities, the club continues to seek new ways to contribute to Granville and the surrounding area.

Serving Our Community

Granville Lions Club Since its founding 55 years ago, the Granville Lions Club has contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to the local community. The club’s latest project is the purchase of a vision screener, an $8,000 piece of equipment that will be used by Granville Lions in local schools and for senior citizens to check for vision abnormalities that require further attention. “It’s a useful tool,” said Granville Lions President Rick Roberts. “In less than 60 seconds, it can analyze the eye and tell if you need a prescription for glasses or have other abnormalities like cataracts or macular degeneration.” The Granville Lions Club will be one of the first Lions Clubs in New York state to own this state-of-the-art technology. The vision screener is in keeping with the mission of Lions Club International to prevent blindness and

restore eyesight. In 1925, Helen Keller challenged the Lions Club to become “knights of the blind,” and the organization has focused on these issues since that time. Through the years, the Granville Lions Club has donated many thousands of dollars to the Lions Eye Institute in Albany, which offers the latest medical advances for those with difficult cases. Roberts noted that the Granville Lions have sent local residents there for procedures, which can be done at an affordable cost. “It’s great to be able to help someone with sight,” said Roberts. “It’s a great gift to be able to give.” Beyond contributing the Lions mission of sight, the Granville Lions contribute greatly to the local community. “We’ve probably donated in excess of $50,000 to the Granville Little League through the years,” Roberts

is able to make these donations because of its warehouse sale of Telescope Furniture that takes place each year on Friday evenings and Saturdays from May until the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. The warehouses are located on Lions Lane, behind the Granville Post Office on Main Street. Roberts noted that anyone interested in serving their community by joining the Granville Lions is welcome to attend a meeting to learn more. The club meets at 6:30 p.m. on the first and third Tuesday of each month at AJ’s Restaurant on Quaker Street in Granville. Granville Lions are in District 20-Y2, part of the 1.4-million member Lions Club International, which has 26,000 clubs around the world.

said. “We recently gave a $10,000 donation for their latest project.” Other local beneficiaries of the Lions include the Pember Library and Museum and the Slate Valley Museum. A few years ago, the club purchased a $20,000 thermal imaging camera for the Penrhyn Engine and Hose Company. “It not only helps the firefighters,” said Roberts. “It has also been used in search and rescue.” The club’s annual events include the Fourth of July Kids Day, two bloodmobiles, Kids Christmas, in which club members take local youth shopping for Christmas presents for their family, and a senior dinner at Christmas time served to residents at Mountainview Commons. In addition, the club gives three $1,000 scholarships to graduating seniors at Granville High School each year. The Granville Lions Club

Mettowee Valley Senior Citizens One of Granville’s most active and lively organizations is the Mettowee Valley Senior Citizens. The 80-member group currently meets at noon on the first and third Thursday of each month at their building at 7 Morrison Avenue in Granville. “We’re more of a social group,” said President Lois Warner. From October through spring, the organization holds a soup and sandwich lunch at the first meeting of the month. In addition to the regular meetings, there is a group that meets on Tuesday mornings for crafts. According to the Mettowee Valley Seniors bylaws, said Warner, the purpose of the organization

is “to maintain and support programs designed to promote a spirit of fellowship and sociability.” “We support each other,” she commented. Meetings frequently have a guest speaker. Recent speakers have provided helpful information such as knowledge about changes in health insurance. Another guest spoke on the history of North Granville. Musical groups also entertain from time to time. At the meeting on the third Thursday in December, the clowning group the Battenkill Joeys will perform. The Mettowee Seniors work in conjunction with the Washington County Senior Citizens, said

Warner. “They provide programs for us also,” she said. The group enjoys travel, and offers both day trips and extended trips to its members. Last spring, said Warner, they went on a nine-day vacation to Myrtle Beach. In September 2015 they went to Boothbay Harbor in Maine. Next September, the seniors will travel to Branson, Mo. The Mettowee Valley Senior Citizens is open to anyone 50 years of age and older. Residents over the border in Vermont are welcome to join also, Warner said. Dues are just $5 per year. For more information about the Mettowee Valley Seniors, call President Lois Warner at 518-642-2724.
