On Oct. 25, more than 800 Masonic family members from throughout Northern California came to the Masonic Home at Union City to celebrate fraternity, the autumn harvest, and the importance of Masonic connections at the Masonic Homes’ second annual HarvestFest.
Guests of all ages enjoyed a variety of activities – from face-painting and pumpkin decorating to games and tours of the Masonic Homes and Acacia Creek campuses. Many residents hosted on-site booths to meet guests and introduce them to the Homes’ lively lifestyle and successful aging philosophy of care. Live entertainment from a Hawaiian-style band provided a festive ambiance, and a barbecue lunch showcased some of residents’ favorite foods.
One of the highlights of this year’s celebration was the official dedication of Rainbow Road by Grand Master M. David Perry and officers of the Masons of California Grand Lodge. Youth leaders from the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls, California, attended the celebration and gave an inspiring address. They were joined by Masonic youth from DeMolay International.
The Masonic Homes thanks all Masonic family members who attended this festive celebration to share in the joy of fellowship.
