Eat for a great cause at the Scottish Rite Fish Fry on Feb. 23

Fish FryThe local Scottish Rite chapter will be holding a fish fry at the Scottish Rite Masonic Center (located on N. Monroe and Tharpe St.) this Saturday, February 23, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.  Please join us to eat lunch in support of this great group and cause!

Many children in our community benefit from speech therapy and hearing aids, which are funded by the donations from the Scottish Rite Foundation.  Learn about the Scottish Rite’s support:

The Florida State University’s L.L. Schendel Speech and Hearing Clinic, operated by the School of Communication Science & Disorders, is one of 14 Scottish Rite clinics in Florida.  The Scottish Rite Tallahassee Valley’s support helps families cover expenses for therapy, hearing aids and summer Communication Camp.  This fall, Scottish Rite held two fundraisers for the clinic — a community fish fry on October 2 and an “early bird” Belk Charity Sale on November 6.  Together, they raised more than $1,800!

Scottish Rite’s commitment to children and the work of the FSU Schendel Clinic can be summed up in the following quote from its website: “One of the children’s most precious human assets, their ability to communicate, is Scottish Rite Masonry’s goal come true. A functioning voice helps us get acquainted, get along; get ahead, and on occasions, helps us to survive.”

The goal of this Clinic is to provide effective community services that improve the communication abilities of clients and to provide a teaching and clinical research laboratory that seeks to develop an exemplary assessment and treatment procedures for use by our students and professionals in speech-language pathology and audiology.  Find more information about the Clinic at:
