As many of you are aware, the Masonic Care Community covers 400 acres. Our beautiful AcaciaVillage, which is celebrating 20 years of exceptional living this year, is surrounded by the beauty of the MohawkValley. For years, we have talked about adding a driving range to the eastern side of the village, and thanks to a donation received during the Annual St. John’s Day Weekend from Sandy Creek Lodge # 564, that driving range is now a reality for our AcaciaVillage residents. Pictured here are John Munson, James Wing, Kenneth Wheeler, Eric Wing, Lorice Setzler, Edson Setzler, MCC Executive Director Robert Raffle, Buildings and Grounds Director Bob Butler and Development Director Victoria Cataldo. This donation was made in honor of all Brothers of the Sandy Creek Lodge #564

What the Baby Boomers Are Looking For in Retirement Living
by Kathy Contino-Turner
Many of us love pets. At the Masonic Care Community, we welcome visitors to bring their four legged family members to visit. But we do require you present proof of an up to date rabies vaccination as required by New York State Law. Please carry the certificate given you by your vet, which includes a description of your pet, with you at all times. The tag on your pet's collar is not proof of vaccination. Please make sure your pet is clean, as animal fleas or other parasites can easily be transfered to bedding or carpet in a household. Please keep your pets off the furniture, especially in the common areas of our facility. And when you take your pet outside "to do his business" please clean up after him. Keep pets out of areas where food is being handled.
