Together we make a profound difference

Three Cheers for Masonry

Glendora Lodge No. 404 has been part of the Glendora community for more than 100 years. Chartered in 1909, the lodge refers to itself as “The Friendly Lodge of the Foothills” for its tradition of welcoming guests.

This year, for the first time, the lodge opened its hall to a new kind of visitors: cheerleaders.

The Glendora Tartan cheerleaders approached the lodge this winter, when shorter days and cooler nights made practicing outside difficult. The lodge immediately agreed to let the squad use its hall for practice.

Alfonso J. Sanchez, past master and current junior warden of Glendora Lodge explains, “The squad of about 35 girls, ages 10 through 14 years old, filled the hall several times with the sounds of rhythmic cheers and songs. Their precise movements would make any drill instructor of the U. S. Military proud.”

On February 17, cheerleaders, coaches, and squad members’ parents visited the lodge together to thank its members for their hospitality. As a token of appreciation, they presented lodge leaders with tee shirts from the Glendora Tartans football team.
