Mem­bers of the Or­der of Eastern Star Madi­son Chap­ter re­cently do­nated much needed clinic sup­plies to Mans­field El­e­men­tary School.

“The Wor­thy Grand Ma­tron over the State of Ge­or­gia is a re­tired school teacher and she asked that we sup­port our lo­cal schools by pro­vid­ing sup­plies,” said Bar­bara Ewing, a mem­ber of the Or­der of Eastern Star Madi­son Chap­ter, which meets on the square in Cov­ing­ton. “We chose to help Mans­field El­e­men­tary. I have been driv­ing a school bus for this school for 12 years and my grand­chil­dren went through the school, so it’s very spe­cial to me.”

Ewing said school of­fi­cials no­ti­fied her of a need for clinic sup­plies so the group pro­vided a ta­ble full of sup­plies, in­clud­ing BandAids, gauze pads, ace ban­dages, la­tex gloves and other gen­eral clinic sup­plies.

“We are very ap­pre­cia­tive to the mem­bers of the Or­der of the Eastern Star for the do­na­tions made to our clinic,” said Lynne DiNardo, prin­ci­pal of Mans­field El­e­men­tary. “This will ben­e­fit all of our students. The sup­port of community or­ga­ni­za­tions helps to en­sure the suc­cess­ful­ness of our school and we are very grate­ful.”
