Greetings from your Ohio Masonic Home Foundation. As we continue transitioning into 2020, it is the perfect time to reflect on the past year and the many blessings bestowed upon the Home and the individuals we serve. We consider you, our supporters, as blessings and we THANK YOU for your ongoing support.
Reflection is a way for individuals to take stock in what has transpired and consider who has had influence in our lives. Even more so, reflection has a way of transforming our minds from the past to what we want for our future. We start to ask ourselves questions like, “How can I make a difference? How will I be remembered? Will I be proud of the legacies I leave behind?”
In short, all we can do is strive each day to be the best person we can be. To recognize that we are all children of God here to serve one another. Maybe our legacy will be in the teaching we provide to those we love. Maybe it will be our children we nurtured to be upstanding men and women. Maybe the life of a stranger whom we cared for through our dedication to service. It may even be a monetary gift to our favorite charity so they can continue the work that touches our hearts.
We would like to thank those who chose to name The Ohio Masonic Home Foundation as a beneficiary of their estate, trust, retirement account or insurance policy in 2019. Your commitment and future gifts have the potential to change the course of many lives in a positive way. Part of your legacy will most certainly be that you provided hope to those in need.
Thanks to you, individuals in our care will continue to receive support after they have exhausted their personal resources. Moms and dads, grandmas and grandpas battling Alzheimer’s disease and dementia may get the spark they need to connect with loved ones. Thanks to you, Ohio seniors will maintain their independence by getting connected to available resources. And men and women who are looking to create their own promising future will receive scholarships toward a post-secondary education. Your continued support allows us to do all that is necessary to continue our 127 year legacy of serving Ohio Freemasons, their wives, and widows.
We thank you for being the best you that you can be. We wish you a safe, healthy and prosperous 2020 with an abundance of opportunities to serve others.
