Caring for the vulnerable. Protecting the weak. Empowering the young. Educating the curious.

These are the values of Pennsylvania Masons. And these are the missions of our Masonic Charities. While each Masonic charity has its own mission, at the core of each organization is Pennsylvania Freemasonry, and at the heart is our generous donors.

In 2022, The Masonic Library and Museum of Pennsylvania continued to tell the story of Pennsylvania Masonry through the preservation of artifacts, artwork, books, records and more. Many items await discovery and restoration in the archives, all of which have shaped the history of Freemasonry. Thanks to donors, the nearly-completed lighting project will spotlight the Masonic Temple, inviting members, visitors, scholars and students to come inside and explore the 150-year-old National Historic Landmark.

The Pennsylvania Masonic Youth Foundation supported youth groups in leading community service projects for neighbors in need. The scholarship program, made possible through donors, helped young scholars pursue their goals through college or career and vocational opportunities. Participants were impacted by bullying prevention workshops and the LifeSkills Conference, where they learned skills to enrich their communities.

The Masonic Children’s Home provided up to 40 children with a clean, safe and loving home. For many of the children, it is the first time they’ve experienced stability in their young lives. With the support of donors, house parents and tutors ensure all the necessities for a good childhood are available, including the chance for kids to pursue higher education and achieve their dreams.

The Masonic Villages cared for and served more than 2,800 residents, focusing on engagement and fulfillment, as it has for the last 150 years. The organization has endured wars, economic depressions and pandemics and continues to face challenges. Current government funding falls significantly short of the costs to provide services for residents unable to afford their care. With donors’ generous support, these shortfalls will never impact the quality of care provided, and with the addition of the Evergreen end-of-life care neighborhood and therapies like the multi-sensory rooms, staff continue to enhance residents’ well-being. The Masonic Outreach Program remained a lifeline for Pennsylvania Masons, their wives or widows facing hardships.

The missions of our Masonic Charities are only successful because of YOU. Thank you for supporting our charities in 2022 and spreading the values of Pennsylvania Freemasonry to those in need.

As assistant director of public programs at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) in Philadelphia, Lori Waselchuk is responsible for developing and facilitating public programs for the museum, including adult classes, tours, lectures and the art and medicine program.

It was only a matter of time before the Masonic Library and Museum of Pennsylvania and PAFA would collaborate on a joint program, since the two institutions are within walking distance on North Broad Street.

“I believe we all get stronger together,” she said. “This partnership strengthens our work and missions as well as our relationships with our audiences. So, we rise together.”

The sold-out “After Hours Architecture Tour and Rooftop Reception at PAFA” held in August gave 64 guests the opportunity to experience the highlights of both buildings, led by experts in history and architecture.

4 MasonicCharitiesPA.org

“I had never been to the [Masonic] Temple before, despite our proximity,” Lori said. “I loved the idea of connecting the two buildings with a joint architecture walking tour.”

The event culminated with a reception on the rooftop of PAFA’s Hamilton building, with great views of both the Masonic Temple and Center City.

“Everyone had a good time,” Lori said. “Many of the guests were new people [non-members of either institution], which was satisfying in terms of cultivating new audiences. We’ve now decided to turn this into an annual event in the summer months.”

In the past, PAFA has partnered with other Philadelphia institutions on programs, including the African American Museum and the Asian Arts Initiative. Working with the Masonic Library and Museum was a natural next step, Lori said.

“The leadership was a delight and really committed and responsive,” she said. “It was fun to connect these two buildings, which were built around the same time.”

Lori is always thinking of fresh ways to bring arts groups together with the common mission of strengthening each other and continuing to bolster the arts in Philadelphia. The Masonic Library

and Museum currently provides space for PAFA and other students to sketch as part of their coursework.

A William Rush exhibition is planned for the future, highlighting the number of Rush sculptures at the Masonic Temple, PAFA and other Philadelphia cultural institutions.

Working with art institutions, museums and schools in the city and beyond helps ensure the legacy of the Masonic Library and Museum as a Masonic and American treasure. Donors are making improvement efforts within our Masonic Temple and in preserving Masonic monuments across the state possible.

The Illumination Project, which will light the Masonic Temple alongside other landmark cultural institutions on the Avenue of the Arts, was successfully funded by generous supporters and is nearly complete. Your gifts also helped restore the Washington at Prayer statue at the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge for future generations.

Thank you to all who continue to help bring the history, art and influence of Pennsylvania Freemasonry to light for all to discover and embrace.

“I really believe we all get stronger together.”



Gabriella GrowMiller has a family legacy of involvement in the Pennsylvania Masonic Youth Foundation (PMYF). As a proud new member of Rainbow Girls, she is excited to continue the tradition of self-realization and caring for her community.

Gabriella is a sixth grader at Abington Middle School in Montgomery County, where her favorite subjects are social studies, math and science. In her free time, she enjoys listening to Olivia Rodrigo and skateboarding. She took an interest in Rainbow

Girls, one of PMYF’s organizations for young women aged 11 to 20. The group promotes leadership, effective communication and service to others, as well as the ideals of friendship, love and charity.

Gabriella was supported by her family, especially her father, Louis “Lou” GrowMiller, who also has a history with PMYF. A Senior Deputy Executive Officer for DeMolay, 32° Mason, Grand Steward for the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania and past State Master Councilor of Pennsylvania DeMolay, Lou was thrilled to share

the experience with Gabriella. From planning chapter events to working with diverse individuals from around the state and country, Lou has experienced firsthand how PMYF organizations help prepare young men and women to be resourceful, responsible and independent.

“I know how much it did for me as a young person starting out shy, not really able to communicate with people, then being able to speak publicly and independently plan events,” Lou said.

6 MasonicCharitiesPA.org

“It’s a wonderful teaching opportunity that many people don’t know about or take advantage of, so I’m excited to see the different ways in which Rainbow Girls benefits my daughter and vice versa.”

Since her initiation in June 2022, Gabriella has enjoyed the curriculum and community that Rainbow Girls has provided. Even in such a short time, Lou has already noticed changes in Gabriella’s confidence and initiative, including watching her study her ritual book before bed.

“The fact that she is able to stand up in the middle of a room during a meeting and introduce me is a win,” Lou said. “She’s just a little shy and quiet, but she still stood up and said who I was. It was a proud ‘Dad’ moment. I’m really excited to see how Rainbow is going to help her grow into an amazing young woman.”

Their shared experience has only brought them closer together as Gabriella gets more involved with Rainbow Girls, and subsequently Lou as an adult volunteer.

“It’s a way for me to give back. I think community service is really the footprint of Masonry and DeMolay,” Lou said.

Self-realization and caring for the community are just two of the benefits of belonging to a Masonic youth organization in Pennsylvania, which include DeMolay, Job’s Daughters, Knights of Pythagoras, Rainbow Girls and Ruth Mitchell Tucker Girls Youth Department. Each group fosters the values of Freemasonry and gives youth a place to develop and succeed.

Through donors’ contributions, PMYF provides resources and tools to the youth groups and awards scholarships to help students achieve their education and professional goals.

PMYF also uses your support to develop adult leaders in the community through bullying prevention workshops and to teach youth skills to enrich their communities through the LifeSkills Conference.

You make these life-changing opportunities possible, shaping the present and future of Pennsylvania Freemasonry one child and adult at a time.

“Giving back and helping to build young future leaders is my passion, and I really appreciate the opportunity to do it.”


At 11 years old, Marissa is one of the youngest girls at the Masonic Children’s Home. Despite her age, with the encouragement of supportive house parents and cottage mates, Marissa’s big personality and friendly nature have allowed her to overcome any obstacle.

Originally from Lancaster County, Marissa arrived at the children’s home in August 2020 with her brother, Michael. Having her brother with her made the transition much easier for Marissa, who was only 8 at the time.

The day the siblings arrived, Marissa remembers being the only girl in Balliet Cottage, as her housemates were home visiting family during the summer. On top of that, since the two moved in during the height of the pandemic, Marissa and Michael were placed in quarantine upon arrival, per COVID-19 risk reduction guidelines.

Marissa was understandably nervous to introduce herself when her housemates returned from their visits soon after. Nevertheless, she didn’t let fear or physical boundaries prevent her from making new friends at the children’s home.

8 MasonicCharitiesPA.org MASONIC CHILDREN’S HOME

“The girls stood on the landing, and I opened my door from upstairs so we could see each other,” Marissa recalls. “We talked for a while, and I showed them all my toys.”

Since their first meeting, Marissa has easily made friends with the girls and now enjoys playing games, watching movies and swimming at the Brossman Pool on campus with her “sisters.”

They can attest to Marissa’s kindness and independence, which have helped her grow into herself and explore her interests since her arrival at the children’s home. She’s now the one helping new children feel at home and overcome scary moments, like the first day of school.

As a middle schooler at Elizabethtown Area School District, Marissa studies hard and hopes to one day become a lawyer.

For now, Marissa looks forward to finishing up sixth grade and enjoying future trips to the Laserdome, a local entertainment center, where she frequently earns a “top player” title in laser tag.

To the donors who continue to help make her future success possible through their generosity and financial support, Marissa has a simple message: “Thank you!”

Among the things Marissa and all the children are grateful for is a new van purchased thanks to donors, including members of the Order of the Eastern Star. The van helps staff transport kids to appointments, competitions, worship services, after-school jobs, field trips to the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts, vacations at the beach and more. Masonic lodges have contributed financial donations and books, as well as hosted parties for the youth.

Of the 2022 high school graduates, we can expect to see a future pediatrician, physical therapist and radiologist. Other alumni continue to exceed expectations by working as teachers, airplane technicians and attending law school.

For kids who start off life feeling hopeless, the Masonic Children’s Home, and those who support its mission, are giving them the opportunity to experience success, joy and love.

Much of what our donors provide for residents across our five Masonic Village locations can be physically seen, heard or touched. It can also be experienced in the love, comfort, compassion and fulfillment felt by our residents. Your gifts are measured in smiles, laughter and hugs exchanged between a resident and their family or a resident and a staff member.

Having a private space and access to the best health care possible is the least a family should expect when a loved one is facing the end of life.

Donors have given families this gift in the form of the new Evergreen neighborhood at the Masonic Village at Elizabethtown.

With 16 rooms, each including a pullout bed for family members, as well as private meeting spaces, a chapel and a children’s room, residents and their loved ones have the time and space to just be together. Staff on the neighborhood are specially trained and work with a medical director and hospice team to provide personalized attention.

You helped residents enjoy meaningful moments and ensured families peace of mind.

Multi-sensory rooms, a gift from Washington Lodge No. 156, give a new dimension to recreation for residents in the Masonic Health Care Center in Elizabethtown. Residents have the opportunity to be immersed in music, images and colors, providing mental stimulation, memory enhancement and mood boosting.

A new koi pond and waterfall in Warminster, made possible thanks to a donation from Masonic Lodge No. 9, with significant support from Concordia Lodge No. 67 and Newtown Lodge No. 427, provides a tranquil and decorative element to the outside courtyard, with residents enjoying feeding and watching the fish.

Additionally, many items purchased through donor funds significantly impact day-to-day life, including: wellness equipment, a putting green, specialty mattresses and wardrobes. Residents’ lives are made safer, healthier and more fulfilled.

Through the Masonic Outreach Program, widows know they always have someone by their side, with financial assistance and personal support available in their time of need. Masons facing hardships also know the fraternity is there to support them through good

times and bad. These reassurances are only available because of the contributions of our donors.

Donors have not only helped Masonic Villages survive challenging times in the past and present, but you’ve helped us thrive and shine. The possibilities of more smiles, hugs, laughter and joy increase with every gift.

Patricia “Pat” Sweigart spent most of her life caring for others when they needed her most. Now, Masonic Village is able to return the favor, thanks to generous support from donors.

Pat has called Masonic Village at Elizabethtown home for over 12 years, now residing in the personal care area.

She worked for more than 10 years with Bethlehem Steel, and another 25 years at Butler Manufacturing in Annville, where she retired as an automatic welder.

She also regularly operated steel shearing machines and transported electrical equipment in large trucks.

During this time, Pat also enjoyed traveling and reading, though she admittedly didn’t have much time to do either between working and raising her children. After outliving three of her four children, Pat is grateful to find comfort and stability in the care she receives at Masonic Village.

12 MasonicCharitiesPA.org MASONIC VILLAGES

“There are a lot [of retirement communities] out there, but not a lot of good ones,” Pat said. “Masonic Village provides everything I could ever need.”

In the time since her move, Pat has witnessed firsthand the Masonic Village philosophy of maintaining a zest for life, even in retirement. She is no stranger to the activities and engagement opportunities available on campus, despite losing some of her mobility over the years.

“I’ve lost a lot physically, but I’m not being ‘put away,’ like at a traditional nursing home,” she said. “You can do nearly anything here, and I’ve tried [every activity] at one time or another.”

One of the things that has been abundantly clear to Pat during her time here is the dedication of staff to resident care.

“Of all the years I’ve been here, I must say that the staff is wonderful,” she said. “They’re well-equipped and knowledgeable, and you can tell they really care about you.”

In her free time, Pat has revived her old hobby of reading, with Nicholas Sparks being her current favorite author. She also enjoys weekend excursions with her

daughter, Robin, who lives in Middletown and visits often.

“Living alone, it’s hard to find motivation to stay on your feet and take care of yourself,” Pat said. “After a hard life like mine, it’s nice to have people I can trust taking care of me for once.”

Most of all, Pat is grateful to the amazing staff who facilitate her care and the donors who make it all possible.

“I thank the Lord every day to be here,” she said. “To all the staff, donors and other residents who make living here so enjoyable, thank you!”

With the help of donors like you, hundreds of other residents across the state are able to experience the comfort and dignity of retirement at Masonic Villages, without worrying about the cost of their care. Pat says it best herself: “There’s nowhere better to be!”

Patricia passed away on Feb. 14, 2023. Her family gave permission to share her story in her memory.

“It’s nice to have people I can trust taking care of me.”

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 2022.
