GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI

the support of you, the Brethren through the $2.00 assessment that was voted on by the membership. We thank you. The hard work and dedicated devotion of our 21,186 volunteers, the untiring dedication of our regional coordinators and their individual teams of technicians and organizers along with their families and friends are the heart and soul of our great charity. It takes both labor and finances to keep an organization going. The support of organizations such as the Order of the Eastern Star, the Odd Fellows, and Weherenberg Theatre group, Prince Hall F&AM, along with others lend support in financial ways. The Widows Sons has designated the MOCHIP program as their charity and provide both volunteers and money. Individual lodges give us support in both volunteers and donations and help us maintain and expand our services. To all of you, the board wishes to give you a hearty and sincere thanks for all you do not only the Masonic Children’s Foundation, but also fot the Masonic fraternity in general. The example you set by your actions and the support you give to our charities in your individual communities speaks volumes about who we are and does more PR good than anything we can put in print. We must of course recognize the contribution to the overall program of RWB Nick Cichielo and his partner in life and the MOCHIP program, Lori. Their dedication to our Fraternity and our Charity is obvious. Their ability to organize and plan and maintain our system has contributed to our success over the last 10 years and we could not have done what we have done without their expertise and hard work. Thank you Nick and Lori. Finally, I would like to thank each of the board members for this year. I consider it a privilege and an honor to have worked with each of these men. Their support and dedication to the Children’s Foundation has shown through in our meetings and discussions. Always ready to lend a hand and give advice and council has been a great gift to me this year. I thank each one of you. Your Masonic Children’s Foundation continues to fulfill its mandate and I know that it will continue to do so with the dedication and commitment from each of the board members and of course you. Respectfully and Fraternally submitted, Masonic Children’s Foundation Board of Directors Stanton T. Brown II, President Barry V. Cundiff, Vice President Ty G. Treutelaar, Member Richard W. Kaeser, Member
