community on the golf course at the Irem Country Club

On Dec. 10, members of the Irem Shrine Country Club voted overwhelmingly to proceed with plans for the Masonic Villages of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania to move forward with development of the area's newest active adult retirement community, Masonic Village at Dallas.

According to Colleen Burns, NHA, Administrator of Masonic Village at Dallas, the level of interest and acceptance of the community has been phenomenal among the potential new residents of the Masonic Village at Dallas.

Pre-marketing efforts have been extremely successful.

On Dec. 16, the Committee on Masonic Homes approved moving forward with the first phase of development of the Masonic Village at Dallas. The first phase will consist of 45 apartments and 38 cottages featuring various floor plans. The Shrine approved a Master Plan which consists of possible future development of over 300 retirement living accommodations, based on demand. Enhancements to the country club buildings and grounds are planned as development of the new community moves forward.

Residents will not only gain access to the area's premier retirement community, but they will also have preferred access to designated health care facilities, as well as any of the Masonic Village health care facilities across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Retirement living residents will enjoy a dynamic lifestyle within a secure environment without all the worries of home maintenance responsibilities. There are various floor plans available, including one- and two-bedroom apartments with a balcony and a variety of two-bedroom cottages featuring one and two-car garages.

Residents of the community will have the opportunity to choose the right accommodation to suit their carefree lifestyle.

Masonic Village at Dallas is collaborating with area businesses and rofessionals to establish relationships to ensure residents are afforded every opportunity for recreational, wellness, cultural, educational and social outreach.

"We look forward to the partnerships and feeling of community spirit that will develop out of these relationships for the betterment of our residents and Back Mountain Area at large," Burns said.
