With your help, the Payson Masonic Lodge Clothe-A-Child Program was again a success. The Payson Masonic Lodge wishes to thank everyone who donated time or money to this worthwhile cause. With your help we were able to assist approximately 40 deserving children from Payson, Pine/Strawberry and Tonto Basin elementary schools. The school nurses: Lauri Lindell, Debra Waterman, Ginney Ennen, Betsy Porter and Secretary Beverly Steel are vital to this program. We would like to especially thank the Tonto Apache Indian Reservation #30, Mazatzal Casino, ERA Community Support Fund and the Wal-Mart Supercenter for their very generous contributions.
The volunteer chaperones were great, as well as the following businesses, organizations and members of our fine community: Crosswinds Restaurant, Knotty Pine Restaurant, George Henry Plumbing, Realty Executives, Chris Smith Investments, Chase Bank, PostNet, Messinger Payson Funeral Home, Sunny Mountain Realty, Bashas', Safeway Dee Wesley Insurance Agency, Payson Jewelers and Safeway, Inc., Payson Woman's Club, Salvation Army, Order of Eastern Star Chapter #64, Zane Grey Shrine Club, Rim Country Scottish Rite Club, Payson Center for Spiritual Awareness, Freeda English, Joanne Barnhardt, Don Monteath, Liz Beresic, Hubuert Moran, Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Lucht, Marty Christy and the members of Payson Mason Lodge #70. A special thanks to our bus driver Chuck Sturmer, the Payson Police and Fire departments, Mount Cross clown and our own Santa, Santa Clemit. If we missed you, we are sorry, but your help was appreciated.
Thank you all.
