Bass Pro Shops National Donation Day

Bass Pro Shops will have National Donation Day on June 6 at 9 a.m., and they will donate rods and reels to Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. Bass Pro founder Johnny Morris is challenging kids and families to put down the screen and pick up a fishing pole starting with a free Gone Fishing event. This event is just one of the ways Johnny, Bass Pro and Cabela’s are working to inspire everyone to enjoy, love and conserve the great outdoors. The company is very proud to be a leader in protecting the habitat and introducing people from all walks of life to nature. Connecting kids to nature is really important to Johnny, which is why Bass Pro is donating more than 55,000 rods and reels to local nonprofits that help get kids outside. There are countless health benefits to getting outside and away from the video games and smartphones. Summer is the perfect time to help families get started and support kids who might otherwise not have the chance to go fishing. Bass Pro will host several free events at the Denham Springs store to help families get hooked on fishing. During the next two weekends, kids can catch their first fish at the store’s catch-and-release ponds. Visitors can learn the basics at free seminars that make it easy for beginners of all ages. Take home a free “First Fish” certificate and a fun Gone Fishing sign and get excited to go fishing all summer long.

Denham Springs Lodge #297

As most of you know, the Flood of 2016 was devastating to our area. The Masonic Lodge, which was established in 1905, took nearly eight feet of water, and everything inside the building was a loss. Included in this loss were all the 5x7 pictures of the Masters of the Lodge. We are now trying to reach out to the families and get as many or all of the pictures back. We are hoping that someone in the families may have a picture or can get us a copy. It doesn't matter if it's color or black and white; it just needs to be a 5x7. Listed below is a list of each Master and the year they served. On these pictures, we ask that you write the name on the back so we can make sure we get it in the appropriate order, especially some of the early years, as most of us at the lodge would not know them. Pictures can be sent to the lodge or given to Mrs. Florence Crowder, Marshal Joe Shumate, Ronnie Coon PM/Secretary, or any member of the Masonic Lodge. For more information, call 225-963-0274 or email rcoon3@cox.net.
