The Kindersley Masonic Lodge has more than 100 years of history and the local fraternal organization continues to stay active within the community.

There are several ways to support a community, and joining a service club or fraternal organization is one way to give back. Membership is down for most service clubs, so people could help by joining their local clubs or organizations if they have the time to spare.

Service clubs have done a lot for their communities and several smaller communities would not have different events or amenities without their clubs. Local clubs and organizations are being featured over a series of articles.

Don Krogstad, a past master and secretary of the Kindersley Lodge and past district deputy grand master, said the lodge is part of a district that includes lodges across the southwest part of Saskatchewan. He said the Kindersley Masonic Lodge was first established in 1911 and the lodge received its charter in 1912.
