Home Day 2019 A Success Despite Rain
On behalf of the Ohio Masonic Home, thank you for being a part of Ohio Masonic Home Day 2019. Even though the weather was not as nice as we would like, the day proved to be a success for our residents, the Fraternity and campus visitors.
The estimated crowd count was just over 1,000. However, we had 10 different organizations selling food, and 22 vendors in our merchants tent this year either selling crafts or providing information.
Visitors enjoyed a Dunk Tank featuring the Grand Master, CEO and various other members of the Leadership team, which raised money for The Ohio Masonic Home Foundation. The Ohio Masonic Home Scholarships were awarded, Dayton Chapter #67 National Sojourners initiated 9 new members, and the parade successfully commenced during a break in the rain.
As always, the food and entertainment excelled. Activities were super for kids and adults of all ages, including a Zip Line and a Petting Zoo. Campus tours were given throughout the day and, of course, the strawberry shortcake was a big hit.
We hope you all had a very enjoyable day and I look forward to seeing you again next year.

Locals Enjoy A Delicious Food Truck Rally
The Ohio Masonic Home 3rd Annual Food Truck Rally was held on June 15, 2019. Although the day was dampened by rainfall and attendance was lower than expected. We had 13 Food Trucks present, entertainment throughout the day and The Pink Ribbon Girls on site with their Pink Fire Truck.
Everyone in attendance had a great time and all the vendors are looking forward to coming back next year. Thank you to all who came out and attended. We look forward to seeing you again next year!
