7th Annual Masters & Wardens Golf Tournament
The Otsego & Schoharie Free and Accepted Masons, Masters & Wardens would like to request your involvement in our 7th annual Masters & Wardens Golf Tournament at Colonial Ridge Golf Course in Laurens, NY scheduled for 8:00am, Saturday August 5, 2017. We expect your advertisement to reach over 100 people throughout Otsego-Schoharie and Delaware Counties and beyond. Advertisement proceeds will fund the Otsego-Schoharie and Delaware Masonic Charities Corporation for the Masonic scholarships program.
Each year the Otsego-Schoharie and Delaware Masonic Charities, Inc. grants Scholarships to deserving area graduating high school seniors. Successful applicants receive two, checks: one for the fall term upon proof of acceptance and enrollment, and then a second check upon proof of continued enrollment for the spring term.
Please note that these grants are open to all deserving students, and that a family Masonic connection is not a requirement. It is required, however, that the application be submitted to a Masonic Lodge, and signed by a local mason and preferably a member of the Charities Corporation.
These grants are not strictly needs based, although a student is welcome to attach a statement of financial need to their application. Neither are these grants strictly scholastic. The student’s application will be reviewed by a “blind” committee, and their entire package, including letters of recommendations, their aspirations, need, and character will be assessed.
Should one or more students be successful in obtaining a grant, they attend a presentation dinner in their honor, and to have their name and picture placed in our local papers if applicable to the local Lodge situation.
Your support of this golf tournament and your local Masonic events will allow the Otsego-Schoharie and Delaware Masonic Charities Corporation to offer additional scholarships to graduating seniors. This enables the young people to better themselves and bring back fresh ideas and outlooks to our communities.
Thank you again for your support.
