The City of Dupree reshapes Main Street with the demolition of three buildings, the old Masonic Lodge, the YMCA  store next to the Lodge, and the old Post office, often called the Oster Building by locals. The Masonic Lodge suffered damage in the 2010 tornado, and the YMCA, which has not been used in several years according to Jerry Lemke, has been standing since 1910, originally erected to serve as the home of the local newspaper. Donnie Farlee arrived to help pick up debris floating into Main Street on the breeze. Farlee is one of a dozen remaining members in Dupree of the Masonic Lodge.
