As they have a busy season lined up, they have teamed up with members of Village Lodge # 26 AF & AM the local Masonic Lodge in Bowdoinham.  Masonry is one of the oldest Fraternities in the world and their charity within this community is extensive. Bowdoinham Historical Society will also be joining the barbeque with their famous strawberry shortcake to raise money for the Carriage Shed.
