On February 7, supporters of The Ohio Masonic Home participated in the first Rose Society Weekend. Upon arrival at the charming Mills Park Hotel, supporters were greeted with a quartet band and specialty drink. After dinner, they were transported to The Ohio Masonic Home where they were joined by community members to enjoy dessert and beverages while watching a magic show by comedian magician, Michael Kent. Saturday’s activities included private tours by Jack Hudson, Lieutenant General, United States Air Force (retired), and Richard Reynolds, Lieutenant General, United States Air Force (retired), of the National Museum of the United States Air Force.
On February 8, the Rose Society weekend supporters were joined by others for the inaugural Rose Society Ball – Winter Masquerade at the Mills Park Hotel in Yellow Springs. Hosted by US Bank and The Ohio Masonic Home Foundation, the Rose Society Weekend and Ball raised thousands to benefit the assisted living community members at the Springfield Masonic Community. The attendees donned masks and danced the night away.
We are very touched by the generosity displayed for this event and are very thankful for the support we have received. We wish to thank all sponsors, especially our Naming Sponsor – US Bank; Presenting Sponsors – BrandMETTLE, Greystone and Remedi SeniorCare; Sponsor – Fazio Color Shop; and Tour Sponsor – Cleveland Chapter 23 of the National Sojourners. Plan now to attend the 2nd annual Rose Society Ball on August 14, 2021 at the Great Southern Hotel in Columbus, Ohio.
