The Masonic Care Community of New York will celebrate its 125th anniversary next Tuesday, but today the organization was honored in Washington, D.C.
Congresswoman Claudia Tenney spoke about Masonic on the House floor on Thursday during general speeches. Tenney talked about Masonic’s start in 1893 and how the masons had a goal of providing high-quality care to fellow elderly masons.
The Masonic Care Community has a timeline exhibit in the history hallway of the Masonic's Health Pavilion, which highlights major events throughout history, leading up to today.
“Masonic Care has supported, nurtured and educated the community by providing exceptional care and services with compassion and pride … guided by the masonic principles of brotherly love, relief, truth and integrity,” Tenney said in Washington.
On May 19, Masonic will celebrate its anniversary with a big party, and admission is free. There will be pony rides, bounce houses, live music and fireworks.
