Gulf Beach Masonic Lodge recently made a monetary donation to The Alligator & Wildlife Discovery Center. The center, located at John’s Pass Village in Madeira Beach, suffered a devastating fire in the early hours of July 13th, which took the lives of many of their animals. Gulf Beach Masonic Lodge has been a part of the Madeira Beach community for over 73 years and has always been interested in supporting those in most need. Travis Palladeno, co-owner of the Alligator & Wildlife Discovery Center, and also a Past Master of Gulf Beach Masonic Lodge, was contacted by the Lodge and informed that his Lodge brothers wanted to do a small part in helping him rebuild the business. The Lodge is hopeful that this important educational center will soon be returned to full operation and once again bring smiles to the young and old alike.
