Pomegranate Lodge #408 A.F & A.M. will again this year be offering scholarships to high school seniors in Newell-Fonda, Storm Lake, Alta and Aurelia. The Pomegranate Lodge also oversees the Harold Salton Trust Scholarship, which is given out to two high school seniors that have a Masonic connection by direct lineage.
The Pomegranate Lodge Scholarship is raised through fundraisers the lodge members participate in such as the Star Spangled Spectacular in Storm Lake, the Cherokee Rodeo, and the Alta Fair. The Lodge will be presenting one $250.00 Scholarship to a high school senior in the Newell-Fonda School, one to a senior in Storm Lake Community School or St. Mary's School, one for an Alta senior, as well as one to a senior from Aurelia Community School. The Guidance Counselor of each school will have the application papers and the applications are due back by April 1, 2011.
The Harold Salton Trust Scholarship is awarded to two area seniors that have a Masonic connection by direct lineage. Harold Salton was very active in the Storm Lake Masonic Lodge and with the youth of the area and established this trust, which is now overseen by Pomegranate Lodge. The two $500 scholarship applications are also available at your high school guidance counselor's office. The due date is also April 1, 2010.
