TECHNOLOGY INITIATIVE

Our Masonic obligation doesn’t end at the sound of the last gavel. As Webmasters of the Craft, our charge is no less than any other Brother. That is why NYMasons.Org’s webmaster has chosen the project for the Digital Square Club of New York to challenge and assist our Brethren to meet the digital needs and wants of the Masonic Care Community.

At Wiley Hall and the Health Care Pavilion, tablets, iPods, and headphones are used for residents to Skype, for their Linked Senior Program, and their certified Music Therapy Program. Even gently used devices of nearly all kinds can be purposed for the benefit of these programs and other uses. These following gift challenges represent opportunities for us to impact the quality of life of our dear residents and fulfill those duties each of us has sworn to uphold.

How it Works:

  • Publicize an ongoing drive for new and gently used devices at your lodges and district meetings
  • Collect and ship to the masonic Care Community or drop off at St. John’s Day (at the Health Pavilion before 4pm on Saturday)

All donors should identify themselves or their lodge or organization on packages.

All questions can be directed to Bro. Ken JP Stuczynski at 716-868-1329 / master@kentropolis.com
