Right Worshipful Brother David S. Collins, Junior Grand Warden, represented our Grand Master and the Grand Lodge of New Hampshire admirably on the morning of December 11, 2015 in Concord. The purpose was the presentation of a donation to the New Hampshire D.A.R.E. program during the graduation ceremony of DARE Officers Training Class No. 28. Thanks to the generosity of New Hampshire Masons through the annual Charity Fund Drive, a donation of $10,000 was made which covers the expense of workbooks the students use for the class. Brother Collins spoke of the importance of this program which deals with helping young people avoid difficult situations and hopefully keeping them from a life involving drugs and alcohol.
