The members of Stephenson Lodge #135 have the opportunity to help a high school senior in her desire to attain a college degree. This young lady is Emily Custer and She is about to graduate from Rising Sun High School with a GPA of 3.89.
Thanks to the generosity of Boumi Temple, Emily, who was born with Cerebral Palsy, was given the ability to walk. Emily traveled many times to the Shriners Hospital in Philadelphia for surgery and therapy and today is able to walk because of her determination and the goodness of the Shrine.
As an active member of her Church, a community volunteer, Emily is also a member of the National Honor Society.

Stephenson Lodge mourns the loss of our brother, Hon. PM Clinton “Cliff” Adams. “Cliff” was loved and respected by all and his kindness reached way beyond the walls of Stephenson Lodge. Married on March 10, 1962, he was the beloved husband of Joyce Ann (Browning) Adams with whom he shared 59 years of marriage. Known as “Cliff” he was born in Baltimore, MD on August 11, 1937, the youngest of eleven children born to the late James I. Adams and Regina Edith (DeBoard) Adams and was a twin brother to his sister, Clyde Irene Bunce who died in 1999. After serving in the US Army, Cliff spent 34 years as a water plant operator at Aberdeen Proving Ground, retiring in March 1997. He was a longtime attendee/supporter of Dublin United Methodist Church and a 50+ member of Stephenson Lodge #135 A.F.&A.M. of Darlington where he was adorned with the recognition of honorary past master. Cliff enjoyed the outdoors, spending time gardening and passionately mowing the lawn. He was known for his love of cookies and apple pie, his beautiful smile and gentle spirit.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by: three children-Lisa Adams Monk (Gregg) of Ft. Worth, TX; Timothy E. Adams (Cindy) of Delta, PA; John Russell Adams of Rising Sun, MD; a sister, Edyth Jorstad of Fairfax Station, VA. Five grandchildren-Andrew Monk (Nicole); Joshua Adams (Natasha); Ethan Monk; Mandy Adams; Jason Adams. He was preceded in death by: his infant son, Clinton Adams, Jr. in 1963 and his loving siblings-Agnes, John, Bessie, Vester, Lorraine, Dottie, Wayne and Jim.
