Tightly Bound In Brotherhood, We Help One Another.

by Chris Brightwell on August 19, 2014

Coosa Lodge member and Kitchen Crew member extraordinaire, Mike Findlay, is currently trying to raise funds to help buy a wheelchair-accessible van for his son.

Sam Findlay, who himself was recently inducted into Coosa Lodge, lives with Cerebral Palsy and a host of other problems.

Mike’s goal is to raise some or all of the $60,000 needed to buy the van. How fitting would it be that we would bind together as Brothers and support one another. Please share this with as many Brothers and friends as you can.

You can follow the fundraising story and maybe chip in a few dollars over on their GoFundMe project page by clicking here: http://www.gofundme.com/d38uj4
