On July 15, 2017, the officers and members of Sequin-Level Lodge joined various representatives from several veterans organizations, including the Disabled American Veterans (DAV), the American Veterans (AmVets), and the American Legion, along with representatives from the Grand Lodge of Connecticut, Masonicare, and MobilityWorks, to present Brother A. Scott Dean, Secretary Emeritus of Sequin-Level Lodge, with a customized powered wheelchair to assist him in navigating around the Masonicare facilities. Brother John Chan, Junior Steward of Sequin-Level Lodge and a Lifetime Member of the DAV, used his contacts at the DAV to locate and acquire an over-sized powered wheelchair that had been donated to AmVets that was not in working condition. Brother John then cleaned, repaired, refurbished and customized the wheelchair to meet Brother Scott’s needs. Brother John contacted Midstate Batteries, in Bloomfield, and Mobility Works, in East Hartford, and formed long term partnerships with them to purchase batteries and parts at special pricing for this and other wheelchair refurbishments. The Brethren of Sequin-Level Lodge donated the costs of the new batteries for the wheelchair.
