– King David’s Lodge No. 209 F.&A.M. of San Luis Obispo continues its support of the Atascadero Fine Arts Academy (AFAA) with a donation of $2,000 as part of the lodge’s semi-annual philanthropic drive, which totaled over $40,000 for this year alone. King David’s Lodge is involved in supporting a variety of nonprofit philanthropic efforts, both locally and statewide. In addition, the lodge awards more than $30,000 annually in scholarships to local high school seniors and to members of the Masonic youth organizations.
Since 2018, the Masons of SLO have given a total of $8,000 to assist AFAA in delivering its unique arts-based curriculum to 4th-8th grade students – the only public school of its kind in the county. The donation was presented on Oct. 1, 2021, by Christian Marano, a Past Master of the lodge, and he was accompanied by Sebastian and Damian, members of the Masonic youth organization, DeMolay International – one of the largest youth fraternities in the world dedicated to promoting leadership skills, civic awareness, and fellowship in young men between the ages of 12 and 21.
