Although the Patton Masonic School closed in 1976, its alumni
continue to meet each year as part of the Masonic Homes-Patton School
Alumni Association (MHPSAA). The Class of 1957 celebrated its
50th Anniversary at the annual October Reunion, held at the Masonic
Conference Center-Patton Campus. Out of a class of 17, at least eight are
members of the Masonic fraternity; four are Past Masters in Pennsylvania
and one in Tennessee. The MHPSAA provides scholarships and support
to the youth of the Masonic Children's Home.
