"Dad" Retires... Masonic Children's Home Debuts New Director

For more than 11 years, Bro. Buz Cash has been like a Dad to dozens of youth who may not have had much of a father figure to look up to. As Director of Children's Services at the Masonic Village at Elizabethtown, he was responsible not only for the 40 kids residing at the Masonic Children's Home, but also for the Bleiler Caring Cottage, home to eight adults with developmental challenges.

Upon his retirement in March, Bro. Buz was delighted to hand over the reins to the capable hands of Ms. Virginia Migrala, who has worked at the Masonic Children's Home in various capacities over the past 27 years, most recently as Assistant Director for the past five years. Her love of the Masonic Children's Home was shared for 22 years with her late husband, Bro. Jerry Migrala, who passed away suddenly in June 2000 after serving as Assistant Director of Children's Services for 11 years.

"While the job has been challenging, it has been rewarding as well. As I sadly leave the employment at the Children's Home, I have every confidence it will not only survive, but also will flourish," Bro. Buz said.

"I know I have big shoes to fill; however, Buz has been a great mentor, and I am confident and excited to take on the challenge," Ms. Migrala said. "Our priorities will continue to be education, wellness and bullying prevention programs."
