Thank You to Our Donors



a note from

R.W. GRAND MASTER JEFFREY WONDERLING As a reflection of the values of Pennsylvania Freemasonry, our Masonic Charities help improve the lives of others. With the challenges of a worldwide pandemic continuing to impact everyone, we’ve been able to count on our donors to keep others’ needs at the forefront. Your support provides comfort during unstable times and gives us all hope for a brighter future. The Masonic Library and Museum of Pennsylvania continued preserving the architectural, ornamental and symbolic significance of the Masonic Temple, sharing Pennsylvania Freemasonry’s past, present and future with members and the public alike. Through this institution, the contributions of Pennsylvania Masons are showcased to the world so everyone may understand our shared obligation to “Do Good Unto All.” The Pennsylvania Masonic Youth Foundation enabled educational and social programs to continue for youth and adults despite challenges due to COVID-19. Youth groups led community service projects to help their neighbors in need. Deserving youth were able to accomplish dreams of a post-secondary education through the scholarship program.

The Masonic Children’s Home gave 37 youth the love and support they needed to reach their full potential. On the outside, our cottages look like any other home, but on the inside, warmth, encouragement and respect abound, propelling youth to be their best and enjoy success in life. The Masonic Villages focused on maintaining the highest quality services for close to 3,000 individuals, giving them peace of mind at all stages of life. Care and attention went above and beyond to offer services like music therapy, caregiver support groups, spiritual care and volunteer opportunities for residents to make a difference in their community. The Masonic Outreach Program continued to be a lifeline for Pennsylvania Freemasons, their wives, minor children or widows facing hardships. The good works of our Masonic Charities are only possible because of YOU. Thank you for supporting one or more of our charities in 2021 and spreading the light of Pennsylvania Freemasonry on those in need. Keep reading to learn more about those impacted by your gifts. We are all connected through the broad reach of Freemasonry, and the Masonic Charities succeed because of YOUR support and belief in the fraternity’s mission.




“ It’s a tribute to Pennsylvania Masons that they recognized the need to preserve their heritage.” As both a Freemason and a retired librarian, Brother Carl Doan is very aware of the benefits of the Masonic Library and Museum of Pennsylvania. “It’s important to preserve Masonic history, with Freemasonry being the oldest fraternal organization in the world,” he said. “We have such a great and long history, it’s both natural and necessary for Masonry to have a museum to store and display artifacts, as well as a library to hold our written legacy. We celebrate our past and should do everything we can to preserve it.” 4


Carl lives in New Jersey now, but he grew up in Pennsylvania. While a student at Elizabethtown College in the 1970s, Carl catalogued historic homes and buildings in Marietta, PA, for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places. Last year, Carl was contacted by a professor at Elizabethtown College who was teaching a course where students worked with Marietta officials to recognize historic structures and promote the town. The students found some of Carl’s earlier work and reached out to him.

“One of the students found an old tavern and thought maybe there was a tie with Masonry, but he couldn’t find any direct connection,” Carl said. “Since I lived near Philadelphia, I figured I could find out. There was a lodge in Elizabethtown that had closed its doors and moved to Marietta.”

“It’s a tribute to Pennsylvania Masons that they recognized the need to preserve their heritage and the core of what they believe in, which is housed in that building. It’s a treasure very few states have. They should be very proud they’ve been able to maintain and keep it.”

Carl contacted Masonic Temple librarian Cathy Giaimo. Together, they located the lodge register, names of lodge members and a list of bylaws. He learned the Square & Compass Inn was the original meeting place of Lodge No. 116, until around 1825. He sent his findings to the students. Calling the library an “invaluable resource,” Carl also appreciated that Cathy was accommodating in letting him use the materials.

As the Masonic Temple was periodically closed for tours and Masonic lodge meetings due to COVID-19 in 2021, we undertook important maintenance and restoration projects, as well as organized our archives and enhanced our online reach. The Illumination Project, which will light the Masonic Temple alongside other landmark cultural institutions on the Avenue of the Arts, was successfully funded, thanks to generous supporters.

“It’s very refreshing to have a friendly atmosphere and access to documents,” he said.

Thank you to all who continue to help us share the light of Freemasonry.

Carl has worked for the Burlington County (NJ) Library and was a librarian in New Jersey Governor Tom Kean’s office. A self-proclaimed “history buff,” for him, the Masonic Temple will always be a highlight. “It’s a magnificent place,” he said.



“ You get to make lifelong friends who are always going to be there for you.” It’s true that some people have a greater fear of public speaking than of dying. Thanks to his involvement in DeMolay, Cole Summerfield has gained the confidence to let go of this fear and become a leader. Cole joined Chester Pike Chapter through a close friend, and seven years later, he’s the Region H Representative of the southeastern region of Pennsylvania DeMolay. His role is to bring together and help plan events for the four different chapters in the Philadelphia area. “I have more responsibility with this position, so it keeps me busy,” Cole said. “I’m learning leadership skills, 6


and this organization has helped me with being more social in general.” Cole also has the opportunity to mentor and teach the younger members in the organization, which is very rewarding. In addition to having meetings every two weeks, the group participates in a variety of service and social activities. “We went to a park and cleaned up trash. For Thanksgiving, we helped the homeless. We do everything from fun things to serious things,” Cole said. Cole is thankful to use the skills he’s acquired through DeMolay to give back to the community and build friendships with other members.

You get to make lifelong friends who are always going to be there for you,” Cole said. “I get to see them going to events. It’s enjoyable.” Cole plans to stay involved with DeMolay throughout college. He is attending Cabrini University to study criminology and will apply what he’s learned from DeMolay to his college experience. His mother, Beth Haney, has been a chapter advisor for DeMolay for seven years. Her role is to supervise the members and ensure they’re each reaching their potential. Getting involved has taught her a lot about her family and the Masonic fraternity, and she is now a member of the Order of the Eastern Star. She’s thankful for the friends she’s made. “I’ve met people from all over the state and people who I probably wouldn’t have met otherwise,” Beth said. Most significantly, Beth is thankful for the unforgettable impact DeMolay has had on her and the members’ lives. “It’s been a really great learning experience for everyone,” Beth said. “I’ve watched the boys develop leadership skills and grow into incredible young men.”

which impact youth throughout the Commonwealth. In its 40th year, the foundation’s programs have grown, but its vision has remained constant. Support has deepened for the Masonic youth organizations in Pennsylvania, including DeMolay, Job’s Daughters, Knights of Pythagoras, Rainbow Girls and Ruth Mitchell Tucker Girls Youth Department, which foster the values of Freemasonry and give youth a place to develop and succeed. Collaborations have increased with educators and school administrators to identify behavioral challenges and offer training workshops. Giving scholarships to encourage college and career aspirations of hundreds of young adults continues to be a priority. New in 2021, the foundation offers career and vocational scholarships to help provide for training, tools, certifications and other costs incurred when pursuing an education in the trades, an increasingly essential career path.

“ I feel like I get a chance.” “Why can’t basketball players go on vacation? They can’t travel.” One of Rudy’s favorite things about living at the Masonic Children’s Home is joking around with his roommates. He has no problem thinking of jokes, like this one, on the spot. “I like making people smile and laugh,” Rudy said. He has been at the children’s home for three years, and said he’s enjoyed it ever since he stepped foot on the campus. “I was excited to come here. My friend, Tony, helped me visit, and he’s a good friend,” Rudy said. “Then I realized that he was in the same cottage, so I was really excited.” 8


Forming friendships is important to all the children at the children’s home. Rudy said he spends a lot of time hanging out with his cottage roommates, who have become his best friends. “We like to play outside and play football, basketball and soccer,” Rudy said. “I get to practice sports with people better at them than me. I get to watch them and learn how they play.” Rudy is thankful for the opportunity to play sports alongside his friends because he already knows he wants to be a professional athlete when he grows up. He’s not sure yet which sport, because he likes

them all, but being at the children’s home helps him to grow closer to achieving these dreams.

out of the recycled plastics. The project will provide two benches for Bainbridge Elementary School.

He also likes math and is able to practice it frequently at the children’s home with the help of in-house tutors. Practicing helps him feel better prepared for school.

Rudy is thankful for everything he is learning at the children’s home and all the opportunities he has now that he didn’t have before.

“I wasn’t good at math until I got here. The teacher here taught us a lot, and now I know my multiplication and division tables,” Rudy said. Aside from gaining academic and social skills at the children’s home, Rudy is also learning to grow up with kindness and compassion. He said the house parents’ actions show him how to treat others. “The house parents can sometimes be strict, but they teach us to not be disrespectful and to use manners,” Rudy said. “They teach us to be good gentlemen.” The kids are provided chances to make a difference in the lives of friends and neighbors through volunteering and community service. One project had them sorting through plastic caps and lids collected in the local community to send to Green Tree Plastics, which makes benches

“It’s a good place to be,” Rudy said. “I feel like I get a chance.” At the beginning of 2021, we said goodbye to Virginia Migrala, director of children’s services, who retired after 42 years with the children’s home. Life for the youth continued uninterrupted as we welcomed Mark Kurzenknabe to the position. New to the role of director, Mark is not a new face at the children’s home. He has served as assistant director since 2004. Last year, in addition to providing essentials, education and purpose for our youth, donors, like you, stepped up to help them participate in extracurricular activities, including sports, to encourage kids like Rudy to find their passion and win at life.

You helped residents enjoy meaningful moments and ensured families peace of mind. While the pandemic continued to affect everyday life across Masonic Villages in 2021, residents, staff and families were able to experience renewal and joy. Seeing families reunite after long periods of time apart were the most rewarding moments for everyone. Staff remained creative and diligent in ensuring residents felt connected, cared for and dignified. With the proper education, equipment and protections in place, we’ve learned to actively live with COVID-19 precautions and are prepared to adjust to changes in the future.



While not every event and activity looked as it did two years ago, we were excited to host our annual Veterans Walk to honor those who’ve served, a balloon volleyball competition, concerts with the Mummers and other programs, as well as celebrate holidays, birthdays and anniversaries. Residents were able to embrace these experiences without safety or financial concerns. Most people living into their 80s, 90s and even 100s, had not considered the longevity Americans now face. Statewide, more than 50% of Masonic Villages’ long-term care residents cannot afford the care they receive.

Your support allows us to deliver the highest quality care without regard to residents’ financial means. This peace of mind is priceless and one of the cornerstones of our Mission of Love. Not only do residents receive the best care, they enjoy unique, integrative therapies at Masonic Villages. Awardwinning music therapy programs, pet therapy, massage, aromatherapy, recreational programs and safelydesigned outside courtyards complement the high level of health care designed specifically with each resident and their family in mind. Dementia is a challenge faced by many families in increasing numbers. Through specialized programming and stimulation, made possible by donors, we help residents receiving memory care find meaning and love in every day. We also assist their families in coping with feelings of helplessness and ease the guilt they may feel from being unable to care for a loved one alone. Our staff are the hands which deliver the care, and our donors are behind every personal interaction and loving touch. We know, with our donors by our side, we can overcome the biggest challenges together.

“ I am so thankful to be here. It’s a beautiful place, and everyone is wonderful.” Resident Jane Smolinski has been a social butterfly her whole life, and living at Masonic Village at Elizabethtown allows her to continue to spread her wings. “I absolutely love living at Masonic Village. When I’m here, I get to meet new people all the time,” Jane said. “The residents come from all over. It’s wonderful.” Meeting new people isn’t out of the ordinary for Jane. Most of Jane’s life revolved around socializing with unfamiliar faces, as she spent years as a Welcome Wagon hostess in Elizabethtown. 12


“My job was to welcome new people, new babies and newly engaged women to town. I’d have a gift for them and talk to them,” Jane said. “I used to know everyone by name, and they’d know me by name.” Though Jane is originally from Conshohocken, it’s evident she has planted her roots all throughout the local community. She and her husband initially moved to Elizabethtown to raise their daughter and son, who still reside in Elizabethtown today.

When Jane moved to Masonic Village five years ago, she especially looked forward to socializing and forming new friendships. She said Masonic Village provides her the opportunity to do so by offering a variety of activities and services. “If there’s anything going on, I’m involved. There is so much to get involved with here, and I love that because I’m a people-person,” Jane said. “It’s so good we can provide for people with lots of different interests. There’s really something here for everybody.” She loves attending weekly church services, and part of the services include singing, another one of her passions. “I’ve always loved singing, and I’m an alto,” Jane said. “I love singing with my friends and anything, like church, that has to do with getting together with others. I get to do that a lot here.” Jane also spends her time swimming, walking and knitting children’s clothes. At Masonic Village, she has the option to do these alone or with other residents.

“I love to try new things, too, which I can absolutely do here,” Jane said. “The best part is I can do them with the friends I’ve made. I have lots of good ones, and everybody here is so friendly and nice.” Despite the abundance of activities residents can participate in daily, Jane said they can move here if they’re just looking for a place to relax, too. Whatever ways residents want to experience their time at Masonic Village, Jane knows it’s very important and helpful for Masonic Village to receive the support of donors and the community. “I am so thankful to be here. There’s no complaints,” Jane said. “It’s a beautiful place, and everyone is wonderful.” Donors, like you, enable residents, like Jane, to keep pursing their passions and new friendships. She can live in comfort and joy without concern for expenses or where to turn if she needs assistance. YOU ensure residents can spread their wings and soar.



Your gifts made an immeasurable difference in 2021 in the lives of those in need. Your continued support will help the Masonic Charities enhance the lives of countless men, women and children in 2022 and beyond.

Gifts and Bequests Realized gains earned on accumulated past support from the members and friends of the fraternity Excess (deficiency) of revenues, support and gains over expenses

The operating expenses of the Masonic Villages have historically exceeded operating revenues. Through the generosity of Freemasons and friends of the fraternity, contributions and bequests enable the Masonic Villages to cover this deficit. The bequests, which have been generously donated to the Masonic Villages, have been invested, and the investment income earned on these funds allow Masonic Villages to continue its “Mission of Love” and caring for those in need. Any excess funds will be invested, so Masonic Villages can continue to provide charitable services to our residents and to the community in the future. On Jan. 1, 2020, Masonic Villages became the sole member of Pennsylvania Masonic Youth Foundation and the Masonic Library and Museum of Pennsylvania. As a result, the financial activities of these two organizations are now included in Masonic Villages’ condensed statements of activities for 2021 and 2020.
