Under Sickness & Distress…

Bro. David Yoder, a member of Otselic Valley Lodge, No. 659 (Grand Lodge of NY, F. & A. M.) needs our assistance!

Brother Yoder, a US Army Veteran, was the victim of a house fire on the morning of Monday February, 8, 2016.  While he was able to escape without injury, his residence was completely destroyed by the fire.  He was left with, quite literally, only the clothes on his back.  Everything is gone – all of his possessions, important papers, everything.

He is temporarily staying in a local hotel until more permanent living arrangements can be made.  In addition to cash, he has an immediate need for clothing in the following sizes:

Jacket/Shirt – XL
Pants – 42W29L
Shoes/Boots – 9 & 1/2 Men’s

He is also in need of hats, gloves, socks, underwear, etc.

If you, your Lodge, or other group are able to make a monetary donation, please do so here and help our Brother get back on his feet.  Any funds donated will go directly to Bro. Yoder.  If you are able to donate clothing or other goods, please send an email to either or so that we can make arrangements to get our Brother the help he needs.

Thank you!

The Brothers of the Cortland-Madison Masonic District
