The Importance of Community

Dear Brethren,

I hope you and your families are having a wonderful summer full of sunshine, family and fun!

The sense of community, friendship and concern for all within our reach, have long been the foundation that makes The Ohio Masonic Home a pillar in the communities we serve. Whether caring for our brethren, widows, orphans or today’s aging population, the care, compassion and concern provided to those we serve remains a vital part of our mission.

Our residents and employees have a passion for creating relationships. Whether it’s attending a concert on the lawn, hosting a fashion show, playing bridge with friends or zip lining through the trees, the communities we have built provide opportunities to develop connections with one another that last a lifetime.

We honor our traditions by fostering community relationships within Springfield, Medina and Waterville, and statewide through the work of our Resource Center. For example, our partnership with local American Red Cross Chapters has given us the opportunity to host blood drives across the state at each of our campuses. We are also home to the Springfield Red Cross corporate office. In addition, the partnership we have with the Ohio Arts Council provides an opportunity to bring new and deepening experiences for those in our community battling dementia, Alzheimer’s and other brain related diseases. These are just a few examples of how active The Ohio Masonic Home is in the communities we serve.

We will continue to focus on building a strong sense of community within our organization and in the lives of those we serve. Whether it’s family, friends, coworkers or neighbors, the connections we build help to foster feelings of belonging and well-being. We believe that the foundation of a strong community is cultivated through our residents, clients, employees, collaborations and partnerships.

Thank you for your continued support of our ongoing endeavors.

Brother Scott Buchanan
CEO, Ohio Masonic Home
