Town of Altavista Votes No To Masonic Lodge Offer:

Altavista officials have voted against a proposal by the Masonic Lodge to renovate the old National Guard Armory for meetings and community events. The County purchased the building and gave it to the town; and discussions regarding the building’s future began last year. The Altavista Journal reports, some council members opposed the proposal, because the facility was purchased using both male and female taxpayers’ money, but the lodge is an all-male organization.
