Together we make a profound difference

July Is Support Our Veterans Month


Grand Master Heisner has declared July 2017 to be Support Our Veterans Month in California. Read his proclamation now.

This important recognition of service members in our Masonic family and greater community is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate veterans’ contributions with your lodge. Here are some ideas.

  • Plan a special program during your July stated meeting to recognize veterans in your lodge.
  • Contact your local VA to help identify veterans in your community and reach out to them to offer thanks for their service.
  • Visit veterans in a local retirement community or VA hospital.
  • Offer to help senior veterans in your community with home repair projects.
  • Volunteer to drive local veterans to doctor’s appointments.
  • Encourage veterans at your lodge to contribute to the Library of Congress Veterans History Project.
  • Write thank-you letters to veterans in your community.
  • Offer pro-bono professional skills to veterans – such as IT skills, legal aid, or tax preparation.

Support Our Veterans Month is a perfect time to partner with Masonic youth in your community. Set an example of giving back and help youth reach their service hours!
