We would like to honor and thank one of our own, for furthering the Arizonan Masonic Foundation for Children and its mission.

We at the Arizona Masonic Foundation for Children (AMFC) want to pause, to honor and recognize our dear brother Worshipful Brother Carl Erdman, who has laid down his working tools. During the first of two recent terms as Worshipful Master of Tucson lodge #4, WB Carl indicated a newfound interest in our foundation in general, and our Children at Risk Program specifically. WB Carl exhibited an unusual degree of understanding of the magnitude of the problems our children face which put them at risk, especially on the heels of the COVID epidemic and our handling of it – most especially the impact on our children which is still not completely understood.  At the conclusion of his second term, he contacted us and expressed that he felt compelled to get more involved with the Children at Risk Program.  Simultaneously, due to widespread health issues on our staff, we were struggling with our initiative to create a long overdue, important, and essential Regional/Lodge Rep program.  Immediately, WB Carl volunteered to be the Tucson Regional Rep and to help us build a strawman we could migrate and adapt to the other regions.

He set about recruiting Lodge Rep’s in the Tucson region with great success. In fact, prior to this latest medical emergency, which has taken our WB, we were in the process of establishing WB Carl as the Director of the AMFC Regional/Lodge Rep program and appointing him to the AMFC Board of Directors. Worshipful Brother Carl Erdman was the epitome of the kind of Can-Do Mason that has sustain the AMFC Children at Risk program for 28 years now, educating over 4200 Arizona educators which represents changing the lives of over 30,000 Arizona at risk children in a positive way.  He will be sorely missed here at the Foundation!  If you are looking for a way to honor WB Carl, look no further, come join us to continue WB Carl’s work in building the AMFC Regional/Lodge Rep program.
