Marine Lodge, Falmouth's Masonic Lodge, recently voted to make a donation in support of the FARA Communications Trailer Project.  On Thursday, October 3, Marine Lodge Master Erich F. Horgan amd Lodge member Maxwell J. Weinfuss (KC1MAX) presented a $5,000 check to the FARA Board of Directors.

The goal of the trailer project is to assemble a professional, self-contained, mobile communications platform that will be used to support emergency, and non-emergency, public safety and public service events.  The completed communications trailer will allow FARA to better serve the community in public service events, such as the Falmouth Road Race and Cape Cod Marathon.  In addition, the communications trailer will support the Falmouth Emergency Operations Center, CERT, Storm Shelters, and the Falmouth Hospital during emergencies, providing vital health and welfare communications support.  The communications trailer will also be used as part of FARA's on-going educational and community outreach activities.

The generous support of Marine Lodge will allow us to achieve our goal.  Falmouth is fortunate to have community based organizations such as Marine Lodge.
