Mulliken Lodge #412 & The Michigan Masonic Charitable Foundation Donation

Pictured left in the attachment below is Tom Barnhill, Senior Warden for the Mulliken Masonic Lodge #412 presenting a check for $500 to Rosie Best, representing the Sunfield Area Sponsors of Programs for Youth (SPY’s). The donation was for the SPY’s Scholarship Fund, and was made possible through the Michigan Masonic Charitable Foundation.


The final Adopt-A-Highway trash pick-up of the season will take place on Saturday, September 23rd. The SPY's pick-up trash along M-43 from Round Lake Road on the west side of town to Shaytown Road on the east side of town, three times a year in conjunction with the Michigan Department of Transportation program. ANYONE interested in lending a hand, just show up at 9 AM in the Best Tax Service parking lot just West of the Sunfield blinker light. If you need more information please call our project chairman Derek Desgranges at 269-838-7686.

Derek says if for any reason you can’t make it on the 23rd, but would still like to help out by doing some picking up on a different day, just give him a call and get some bags and he will give you a small section to take care of.

· Deep Thought of the Week: If you were told you had a terminal illness and had six months to live. What three things would be most important for you to do? Why wait until you are terminally ill?

• Notable Quote: “"The highest reward for a person's toil is not what they get for it, but what they become by it."---John Ruskin

• That’s Puny Department: Why do seagulls fly over the sea? Because if they flew over the bay they’d be bagels.

• Did You Know Section: How many times did Babe Ruth, one of the greatest players in history, win Major League Baseball’s Most-Valuable-Player Award---was it once; three times---four times---or six times?

From 1922 to 1928 the American League awarded a “League Award” to the player who was of “greatest all-round service to his club” The National league followed suite in 1924 and also awarded a league award until 1929. For the American League there was a clause prohibiting repeat winners. Babe Ruth won his ONLY MVP award in 1923. In 1927 when Babe had one of the greatest offensive seasons of all time he was not eligible to win the award and the award instead went to Lou Gehrig of the New York Yankees.
