a note from

R.W. Grand Master Thomas Gamon, IV WHETHER IT IMPACTS ONE PERSON OR 1,000, each Masonic charity serves an important and special purpose. People young and old, in Pennsylvania and across the world, feel the impact of what YOU, our donors, achieve every day. With your generosity, in 2019: The Masonic Library and Museum of Pennsylvania preserved the magnificent Masonic Temple, showcased and maintained Pennsylvania Freemasonry’s history and enlightened visitors from around the world. The Pennsylvania Masonic Youth Foundation provided young adults with a strong foundation for personal growth and success in school and life. The Masonic Children’s Home gave 40 youth a place to call home and all the love and support they need to excel at school, on the field or stage, on the job and in their pursuit of life goals. The Masonic Villages, home to more than 3,000 individuals, provided loving care to all residents, including those who were unable to pay for the quality services they need. The Masonic Charities Fund offered help at a local, national and international level to Masonic and non-Masonic projects alike. Thank you for supporting one or more of the Masonic Charities in 2019 and for believing in the mission of Pennsylvania Freemasonry. Keep reading to meet a few individuals influenced by your support. While they may be strangers, they all share a connection to the mission of the Masonic Charities; a mission made possible because of you.

PROTECT HISTORIC TREASURES

IN THE WORDS OF BROTHER RICK FREEDMAN, P.M.: Historical and majestic. Stunning and breathtaking. Awe-inspiring and beautiful. Most who have visited will call it one of the great wonders of the Masonic world. To me ... well, I proudly call the Masonic Temple “home.” Built in 1873 before City Hall, this masterpiece of a building is home to 4

the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania, Library and Museum and many other Masonic bodies who meet there. As a Freemason for more than 35 years, I am a proud member of several organizations which meet in the Masonic Temple. Each time I visit the Temple, I see something I haven’t noticed before. Each of the meeting halls are vastly distinctive in size, style and architecture and all are simply extraordinary. I have been in many Masonic

buildings, lodge rooms and structures during my Masonic career. Nothing quite compares to the beauty, significant impact, architecture and history of our Masonic Temple in Philadelphia. The décor, cathedral-like ceilings, artwork, beautiful paintings, lifelike statues, sparkling chandeliers and distinguished staircases lend to the awe of this inspiring and diverse structure. Additionally, one can easily spend

hours in the Library and Museum alone. The artifacts, historic books and regalia are astounding. One of the historic relics is George Washington’s Masonic apron, which was presented by the wife of the Marquis de Lafayette. The Masonic Temple continues to draw visitors from all over the world. It is representative of who we are, what we stand for and what we believe in. It displays the dignity of our organization. Historians, tourists, students and passersby marvel at our historic and attractive building, both inside and out. I have proudly spent thousands of hours in the Temple while conducting or attending Masonic meetings. It is the place where my grandfather, brothers and other relatives and friends received their ceremonies of induction. It is the place where some of my dearest friends and Brothers have been elevated to great positions of trust and leadership. It is a place that is and will always be near and dear to my heart, soul and character. The artifacts in the Masonic Library

and Museum are critical for us and future generations of our fraternity to have a greater understanding of who we are, what we believe in and from where we came. For example, as part of an international fraternity, in 2019, Grand Lodge staff scanned and sent a copy of the 1888 Proceedings of the Grand Lodge of Liberia and the 1916 list of officers to the Grand Lodge of Liberia, which due to the civil unrest in its country, has lost much of its Masonic history and records. Donor support is preserving Masonic Monuments throughout Pennsylvania and allowing the Masonic Library and Museum to continue its educational mission of telling the story of the fraternity’s past, present and hope for the future. One of these treasures is the Masonic Library’s 1842 reprint of the fourth edition of the Book of Mormon, which now sits fresh-faced among the library’s extensive collection. The book (pictured above) was re-bound and given a protective case, thanks to donor support, to delay the effects of age and abrasion.

YOUTH FIND THEIR STRENGTHS

ANDREW SANTILLI GREATLY ADMIRES his grandfather, who has been active in the Masonic fraternity for decades. When Andrew was a young boy, his grandfather encouraged him to join DeMolay, one of Pennsylvania Masonic Youth Foundation’s three youth groups, to receive an introduction on what it feels like to be part of a brotherhood. The group, a stepping stone to Freemasonry, is designed to inspire, teach and unite young men.

“He just told me to give it a try,” Andrew said. “After I attended a meeting, I thought it was so fun that I never wanted to miss an event.” Now 20 years old, Andrew has grown to take on the role of 85th State Master Councilor, one of DeMolay’s most prestigious positions. During his installation, Andrew’s mother used her phone to video chat with Andrew’s grandfather, who couldn’t make it to the ceremony. “She told me he was tearing up,”

Andrew said. “That was one of the proudest moments for me.” Andrew truly believes in the power of the organization he’s dedicated so much of his time to. “School doesn’t prepare you for everything that happens in life,” Andrew said. “DeMolay gives you an environment to practice realworld skills in a safe space.” Among these real-world skills are confidence, time management,


YOUR SUPPORT IN 2019 >>

Sustained 3 YOUTH GROUPS

Supported 915 YOUTH public speaking and event planning, according to Andrew. Andrew knew these skills would be necessary in his college career and later in his professional life. He is a junior majoring in finance at Drexel University in Philadelphia. Andrew also values the networking skills offered through DeMolay. “You have opportunities to network with other local guys and even guys across the country and the world,” Andrew said. What starts as a networking opportunity among the young men turns into lifelong friendships.

“Friendships go deeper here than anywhere else,” Andrew says. “These are friendships that 50 years from now, you will still cherish.” The Order of DeMolay takes its name from Jacques DeMolay, who chose to give his life rather than betray his friends. His example of friendship and devotion leads Andrew and his involvement as a mentor in the organization.

“It’s important to continue creating an environment where everyone is comfortable being around each other,” Andrew said. “I let the guys know that I’m always here for them, and that they can call or text me anytime. The friendships go way beyond the fraternity.” In 2019, members among the three Masonic youth groups contributed a total of 7,811 hours of volunteer service to support their communities, and participated in 231 empowerment programs. The Educational Institute hosted workshops and programs for 1,112 teachers, counselors, social workers and human service professionals, giving them the tools to mentor future generations. These efforts help keep children safe and encourage youth to reach their highest potential. Pictured above is Andrew assisting the young men of DeMolay in writing letters to fellow Brothers serving overseas in the military during the 2019 annual Keyman Conference.

CHILDREN BELIEVE IN THEIR DREAMS

JOY GREW UP IN A BROKEN HOME in inner-city Philadelphia. She always knew how dangerous the place where she lived could be and remembers her fear of the possibility that something would happen. “There was a lot of violence and stuff going on,” Joy recalls. Her crowded school, which didn’t challenge her academically, also didn’t allow Joy to reach her fullest potential. In 2018, when Joy came to the Masonic Children’s Home to have a better opportunity to succeed, she was worried. She feared people wouldn’t like her. She feared they’d make up their minds about her immediately. 8

MasonicCharitiesPA.org

Joy didn’t want to be an outcast, and she didn’t want to be disliked in the strange, new environment. However, she experienced something entirely different than what she was expecting. Joy felt accepted almost immediately, and soon, the fear of being disliked and rejected vanished. She started to make friends with the other girls and remembers when they all got matching friendship bracelets.

“When I came and I talked with everyone, I noticed how loving everybody is, and they really did accept me,” Joy said.


YOUR SUPPORT IN 2019 >>

Welcomed children as young as 7 YEARS OLD

The structure, such as having specific meal times, was not something Joy was used to, but the other girls in her cottage helped her get accustomed to the new schedule. Now, she has found the benefits that having structure and a daily routine provides. Her friends also gave her advice about always being respectful of and building trust with the house parents, because their only goal is to be there for the children. She said she would give the same advice to newcomers now. When Joy graduates from high school, she wants to study to become a pediatrician because of her love for children. She also wants to travel. Her list includes Paris, because of the fashion there, as well as the beauty of the city. Joy also encourages her younger sister, Jebbeh, who is 12 years old, to follow her dreams. The children’s home values the importance of keeping siblings together, and because of donor support,

Joy and Jebbeh were able to move to the children’s home together in 2019. For now, Joy’s favorite activities are swimming in the on-campus pool and hanging out with her friends/cottage mates in their bedrooms. She said she learned in the past year how important it is to be open and outgoing.

And as old as 18 YEARS OLD

Brought in 5 NEW KIDS

“If you’re always stuck inside,” she says, “what is that going to do for you? I am grateful for the ways in which the children’s home has pushed me.” Because of donors like you, children like Joy are able to live out their dreams of finishing school in a safe environment and taking the next steps to be successful in whatever they choose to do. Pictured above is Joy with the girls from her cottage and Joy receiving an academic award from R.W. Past Grand Master S. Eugene Herritt at the annual Youth Appreciation Day.

SENIORS FIND JOY AND PURPOSE

LIN JONES BELIEVES his life has come full circle. He was born in the small, historic town of Star Junction, located in Fayette County. Now, he resides in the Star Points Building at Masonic Village at Sewickley. “I think it’s meant to be,” said Lin. “After my wife passed away in 2014, I was left in a two-story home, so it was right that I came here.” Lin, who receives personal care, was always very familiar with the Masonic Village campus. In 1999, he served 10

MasonicCharitiesPA.org

as the Grand Patron of the Order of Eastern Star in Pennsylvania, a Masonic organization he and his wife were passionate about. From his Masonic connection, Lin developed friendships with many other residents who encouraged him to make the move. He is a 55-year Mason and Past Master of his Lodge. “I’m amazed every day at the care that everyone here receives,” Lin said. “From the nurses to the cooks to the administration,

everyone cares. Plus, it’s just a beautiful, well-maintained campus. Nothing here goes unnoticed.” After moving to Masonic Village, Lin wasn’t sure if he’d be able to continue his lifelong hobby of making stained-glass windows since it was getting harder for him to do. Fortunately, he easily filled that void. “One day, I looked at our events calendar and saw there was an art session at 2 p.m.,” Lin said. “So I decided to try it out.”

Provided a HOME to 3,062 RESIDENTS

Supported 2,542 STAFF

He discovered a newfound interest in acrylic painting and has attended nearly every art session since. His daughter was so excited about her father’s new passion that she had boxes of art supplies delivered to his door. After discovering the art sessions, Lin’s interests only grew from there. On any given day, you can find him playing Bingo, singing in the church choir, practicing with the Masonic Ringers bell choir or the ukulele group or playing word games in the recreation room. “There’s so much to do, and there’s no other place like it,” Lin said. “If you’re thinking about coming here but decide to move somewhere else, you’re making a big mistake.” Lin also inspires other residents to get themselves out there.

“When a new resident comes to the dining room, I introduce myself and invite them to be involved in all the activities I’m involved in,” Lin said. He believes life is easier on “the buddy system.”

“It’s all possible because of the people who give money to this place,” Lin said. “Anyone who has given a donation, especially to the recreation programs, should know they have provided an excellent place for people to live. The people here take excellent care of us.” “My kids are funny because they’re always trying to call me,” Lin said. “They say, ‘Dad, we never know when you’re going to be in your room!’”

Made $33.4 MILLION* in charitable care possible

MASONIC VILLAGES

RESIDENTS OF MASONIC VILLAGES find comfort in knowing the care they receive is the highest quality and their needs will be met even if they are unable to afford it. Statewide, more than 50% of our residents receiving nursing care cannot pay for the services they need. Beyond daily necessities, because of your generous support, Masonic Villages provides residents with items and activities (like music therapy, pictured right) that make life safer, easier and more enjoyable. 12

MasonicCharitiesPA.org

A new hip precaution lift sling in Sewickley enables residents to sit comfortably while being assisted with eating and bathing. It’s also user-friendly for staff, increasing safety. A new bladder scanner allows staff in Warminster to make assessments without the need for a doctor or hospital visit. A new cyber cycle makes exercise more interactive and competitive. The beloved turtle pond in Elizabethtown is easily accessible now, thanks to an automatic door opener. Residents in Lafayette Hill enjoy a bit of nostalgia

alongside the sounds of a new jukebox (pictured right). It’s hard to tell what’s brighter: the machine’s lights or our residents’ faces.

The list goes on, as does the impact of your generosity. Masonic Villages residents aren’t just living day-to-day, they’re embracing each minute of each day, because of you. On behalf of our family of more than 3,000 residents and 2,542 staff, thank you!
