Your contributions to the Dayton Masonic Foundation are working. Many positive activities are going on in the building. The building parapets and penthouse walls have been repaired. Masonry joints and tuck-pointing have been completed on the top 9 feet of building. The exterior of the building has now been cleaned, repaired, tuck-pointed and sealed and the roof replaced.
CThe roof repair alone cost over $702,000. We spent about $200,000 on necessary masonry work in preparation for the roof replacement project. This will give us a solid roof over our heads for years to come. Also we have completed the complet restoration with new seats of our auditorium and recently finished a complete restoration of our Great Lounge on the first floor. All this was done with our members contributions to this Foundation.
There are many more major projects needing attention and with your help and support, we will return our Temple to its original splendor. Any individual may contribute to the Dayton Masonic Foundation and receive a letter confirming this donation, which is deductible for Federal Income Tax purposes.
