Some Other Place

Gage Barker and Dr. Harold Steward, 32nd-degree Masons of Beaumont Masonic Lodge No. 286, and their fraternity brothers accepted a mission three years ago – a mission to feed the hungry in Southeast Texas. Twice each year ever since, they have taken it upon themselves to provide barbecue chicken dinners complete with “all the fixings” to the local soup kitchen at Some Other Place (SOP) in Beaumont.

I clearly remember interviewing Paula O’Neal the first time for an article on Some Other Place in Beaumont when I arrived in Texas. Paula told me how the name came to be and I have always remembered that story. She said when people who needed help in the area applied to various agencies, they would be told that the particular help they needed was not available for them through that means.
