This year Solomon Masonic Lodge was proud to present all first graders in the Taylor, Hutto, and Granger Independent School Districts with a Fantastic Teeth Kit! We look forward to continuing this in the future and are working tirelessly to ensure that resources will be available to support this program for many years to come.
Here is a little information copied from the Fantastic Teeth Program website.
About the Fantastic Teeth Fan Club
The Fantastic Teeth Fan Club, a program created by Masonic Home and School of Texas (MHS) to help children and parents learn to prevent painful dental problems and avoid expensive treatment, exceeded all expectations. Thousands of children across Texas have received free prevent tooth decay kits. The tremendous success of this program depends on Masonic Lodges launching this service in their community with free kits from MHS. Lodge members assemble the kits and deliver them to participating schools. MHS coordinates with local schools and provides press releases about the project to local news organizations.
- The Fantastic Teeth Fan Club began as a pilot program of Masonic Home and School of Texas (MHS) in the spring of 2010. A key factor to its success is the involvement of Masonic Lodge members. MHS provides 300 free kits per Lodge for first graders in the community.
What People Are Saying About Our Program!
Butch Murden, Irving Lodge member, said, “This is a fantastic program. Today, we helped 160 kids learn the proper way to care for their teeth and even this old man learned a thing or two. This is truly a great program that will benefit many kids.”
“Teachers tell us children are delighted with their prevent tooth decay kits.” John Ringhauser, principal at Davis Elementary said, “I heard one little boy say, ‘Now, I have my own toothbrush.”
