A Message from the CEO

Dear Brethren,

As we close in on the end of the summer, our Ohio Masonic Home has been focused on the enhancement of the lives of our community members through various activities on our campuses.

At Western Reserve Masonic Community (WRMC), an important part of the expansion project underway is new amenities spaces. We’re excited to be creating a new state-of-the-art fitness center, salon, woodshop, and pub and café. These added luxuries will bring more enjoyment to the lives of our community members.

We’re also in the process of making design enhancements and refreshing the memory care units at WRMC and Browning Masonic Community (BMC). The changes in memory care go beyond updating the physical spaces and include new interactive programming. Robotic pets, like Butterscotch that you’ll read more about in this issue, are just one feature of our memory care programming that sets us apart.

We’re proud to be able to bring activities to our campuses for community members, especially for those who can’t easily attend off-campus events. Fourth of July fireworks displays at each campus are one example of many events we’re able to host for our community members.

Thanks to the interest and support of a donor through The Ohio Masonic Home Foundation, a 12 foot tall square and compass was recently installed by the pond at BMC. Now, work is underway to finalize its installation with lighting so it can be seen anytime, day or night. When it’s lit up at night, it reflects off the water of the pond and becomes even more impressive. This is a great symbol honoring our Masonic roots and ensuring they are forever part of our organization.

I hope you received the special publication we sent to you earlier this month about The Ohio Masonic Home, our history, the services and programs we offer, and what it means to support our mission. If you didn’t get a chance to read it, there’s more information on the back cover of this issue about how to access the publication online.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading this issue of the Beacon about the active lifestyle offered at each of our three campuses and the great work being done by The Ohio Masonic Home Foundation and The Ohio Masonic Home Resource Center. Our work would not be possible without you and our Masonic Fraternity.

Brother Scott Buchanan
CEO, The Ohio Masonic Home
