Wor. Privitera donation in memory of Wor. Donald Norton

On Friday the 13th, December 2019, MVL Past Master Wor. Phil Privitera donated $1,000 to the Little Sisters of the Poor in memory of the life of Donald Norton. Mother Maura and former Somerville Mayor Gene Brune (Little Sisters of the Poor Advisory Board President) received the Donation.

Donald’s favorite Charity was the Little Sisters of the Poor and his last act of Business as Secretary of King Solomon’s Lodge was to motion to make Privitera an Honorary Life Member of the Lodge.
