"Meet the Founders"

The friendship between the two founders of the Masonic Angel Fund (sm) exemplifies the generational diversity of our wonderful fraternity called Freemasonry.

John Alden Sherman

is a direct descendent of Plimoth Colony founder John Alden.  A retired bank president and chairman, John is deeply dedicated to his work with children.  In addition to serving as a Sunday School teacher for over a decade, Mr. Sherman was instrumental in bringing the Masonic Child Identification program to schools in the Lower Cape Cod area back in 1997.  He served as the field coordinator for his local school system's CHIP program for  three years.  The Masonic Angel Fund was a direct outgrowth of John Sherman's experiences with children he interviewed through the CHIP program.  John served the Foundation as Board President from 2000 to 2009, when he was named President Emeritus. He assists affiliated Masonic Angel Funds with their school outreach programs. John runs a clock repair shop as his avocation.


Robert W. Fellows

operates a group of educational software publishing companies in Orleans, Massachusetts. Former board president for Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Cape Cod and the Islands, Inc., Bob's work with children's causes stretches back over twenty-five years. An early proponent of the CHIP Masonic video child identification program, Fellows was instrumental in bringing CHIP activities into area schools during the regular school day. Past chairman of education and awareness for the Grand Royal Arch Chapter of Massachusetts, Bob's extensive work with the York Rite bodies helped make them early supporters of the Masonic Angel Fund. After nine years' service as Board Secretary, Fellows became Board President in 2009.  He is responsible for mentoring startup MAF's and works extensively with the Foundation's partner agencies.
