Our newest venture to Expand retirement Services across the Commonwealth...
Masonic Village at Erie!

The Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania, through the Masonic Villages, has been working with the leadership and membership of Zem Zem Shrine in Erie, Pa., to further Shrine Masons' and the Masonic Villages' mission in the northwest part of the Commonwealth. At Zem Zem Shrine's October Quarterly Meeting, the Nobility gave unanimous approval for the Masonic Villages to pre-market a proposed Masonic Village at Erie. The Committee on Masonic Homes echoed their support for exploring the possibility of developing the vision of the new community.

If plans move forward, the community could include various types of retirement living cottages and apartments, based on resident interest. The Zem Zem Shrine Center, built in 1984, could be renovated to provide additional services for Zem Zem members and residents of the Masonic Village at Erie. Residents would have access to a Clubhouse that could feature amenities such as an event hall, dining room, bistro, lounge, fitness center, library, ceramics and art rooms, hair care studios, convenience store, meeting rooms and administrative offices. The Masonic Villages will negotiate preferred provider agreements with local healthcare providers to ensure residents access to quality services either in the Erie area or at any of the other Masonic Villages in Pennsylvania.

Living at the Masonic Village at Erie would provide future residents countless recreational opportunities within five miles: Lake Erie, Edinboro University, Erie Zoo, the Warren Theatre, Erie Art Museum, Milcreek Mall, Jerry Uht Ballpark and Tulio Arena!
