Charity: Ronald McDonald House

Broad Ripple Lodge #643 had the great privilege to feed 49 parents, grandparents and children at The Ronald McDonald House, Saturday April 29th.

Families, weary from caring for their sick children, were treated to a warm meal of chicken, green bean casserole, sour cream noodles and apple crisp. This small gesture was designed to give comfort to families who are literally living at the bedside of their sick kids at Riley Hospital for Children.

Helping people in their time of need, is not only a righteous cause, but one that goes to the heart of what it means to be a Mason. We would like to recognize these Brothers for making a difference: Dave Reynolds, Jerry Lande, Brian Ross, Collin Denhart, WB Michael DeWitt, Steve Mayflower, Noah Ryder, Sean Maple, Adam Rude, and Jacob Scherer.

Cooking for the families at The Ronald McDonald House at Riley Hospital for Children is a tradition that not only feeds these deserving souls, but feeds our souls as well. We look forward to our next visit in 2018.
