Masons honor kids for 'doing the right thing'

These smiling faces belong to Naselle schoolchildren who earned Citizenship Awards from Occident 48, the Masons lodge, in Ilwaco. Students in the lower grades were honored for what the group’s master, Mike Carmel, called, “doing the right thing when no one was looking.”

They are pictured with guest speaker, Daniel Garcia, the Pacific County sheriff. Back row, left to right, are Margrit Engelson, Jake Erickson, Dakotah Williams, Marvin Tucker and Karsen Green. At front are Grace Brown, Quinn Bergman, Shealean Genn and Oscar Rangila. All are in third through eighth grades. Not pictured are Frankie Digirolamo, Olivia Ruch and Larry Malchow.

The students were selected by their school administrators. A contingent of 145 parents and grandparents attended the event June 1st. Students were presented with certificates then treated to giant ice cream sundaes.
