Through its partnership with Marmaton Lodge 245, the Kansas Masonic Foundation has awarded the FFA program at Marmaton Valley High School $200 and the Moran Day Committee $400.

James Mueller, secretary of the Marmaton Lodge, said  the funds for the Sept. 18 Moran Day will go toward prize money for a chariot race held during the parade. 

“We contribute to the Moran Day Committee regularly,” Mueller said in a press release. “In the past, we have donated money to purchase new bean pots” for the annual bean feed.
