Freemasons Pavilion and Monument at Pittsburgh Area VA Medical Center

pavOn Armed Forces Day, May 15, 1999, the Freemasons of Pennsylvania honored all veterans who served this great country by presenting a new, fully equipped, 3,000-square-foot Freemasons Pavilion with an additional 1,400-square-foot patio and a monument in a landscaped area of the Veterans Administration Medical Center at Aspinwall, north of Pittsburgh.

The facility and its equipment provides a place for residents of the VA hospital and their families to visit, an outdoor place for entertainment, and a focal point for special activities.

In the dedication oration, R.W. Grand Master James L. Ernette said, "We cannot, must not, and will not ever forget those whose dedication and fortitude sustained liberty and justice for us through more than two centuries. Our veterans are special people to whom we will be forever grateful."
