NOTE FROM ADMINISTRATION

New Widows' Guild Outreach Program Finds Success in 2018 Nicholas Mahler, director of sales, admissions and outreach The Masonic Outreach Program, administered by the Masonic Villages, provides direction, education and information on a myriad of helpful health care services and government and state programs to support Pennsylvania Masons, their families, widows and others who need it. It also operates a free Loan Closet in Elizabethtown, which offers durable medical equipment (such as walkers, wheelchairs, shower chairs, etc.) on a shortterm loan basis to individuals in need. In addition, it hosts caregiver support groups at Masonic Village. If you or someone you know is in need of support from the Masonic Outreach Program, call 1-800-462-7664 for more information. Widows' Guild Masonic Village recently established a new outreach program, which focuses on creating a membership and providing supportive programs for the widows of

Pennsylvania Masons. This program is appropriately titled “The Widows’ Guild.” We hosted 10 widows’ events in 2018, developing relationships and expanding our membership to 904 members! Women who attend the events receive their Guild membership and Blue Slipper pins (pictured above) while learning about Masonic Outreach services that could be useful to them. Widows attend events with a neighbor, friend, child or adult grandchild, all of whom are realizing the importance of recognizing these special ladies. Members share contact information with each other and natural leaders form local groups and make plans. Many widows find comfort in learning about the resources offered. A number of Masons have reached out with future plans to honor widows from their lodges, and Masonic Villages will continue to nurture the program so it is accessible to all Pennsylvania Masonic widows by hosting by hosting more luncheons and events in 2019.

Become a Member of the Widows' Guild If you are a widow of a Pennsylvania Mason, you are invited to join this group of 904 members to learn more about the special work being done through the Masonic Outreach Program. Members are encouraged to develop their own network of friends and build relationships with each other. For more information, call Tiffany BrandtThomas, relations administrator, at ext. 33497, or email tbthomas@masonicvillages.org.
