Shining Star Lodge #235 shares with the community
Shining Star Lodge #235, Knights of Pythias under the leadership of Chancellor Commander, Sir Kevin N. Brown, is seeking to grow their chapter in the Pee-Dee area.
In October of 2015, Brown restarted the historic organization and has since brought in over 40 new members. “It’s about connecting with others who wish to promote and provoke change through service in our communities.”
On May 5, 2016 members of Shining Star Lodge #235 participated in a day of service to the community. They made a presentation of water and Gatorade to the Darlington County Little League; toured the Darlington County Historic Commission with Brian Gandy; provided canned goods and non-perishable items to The Lord Cares food bank; and laid a wreath and performed a memorial at the gravesite of Rev. Sir I.P. Brockington. “Remembering the leaders who paved the way for us, who laid the foundation and set the path for us to follow is pivotal in ensuring the tenants of the organization do not change with the times.”
The day of community service culminated with a monetary donation to Mr. Jermaine Nowline, who recently lost his home in a fire. “These are the things that are most important to us. The impact on lives and knowing that difference has been made. Letting the fezzes fly and showing the community that we are more than men in black suits and red ties whom meet privately. We need them to understand that we are committed to empowering and sustaining our communities. That was the goal yesterday, that is the goal today, and tomorrow it will be the say,” says Brown.
