Even in this season of giving, CEO, Chandra Engelbert was pleasantly surprised when she received a phone call from Masonic Master, David Hughes about a donation to Pemi-Baker Community Health.
For centuries, Freemasons have contributed to the communities in which they live through the principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth. Freemasonry has existed in New Hampshire since 1735, and many of the leading citizens of our state have been Freemasons. Their charitable activities are many and varied: the Shriners’ Hospitals for Children, support of medical research, scholarships, programs for child identification and combating drug abuse, the Scottish Rite Learning Centers, and local charity. Freemasons are committed to helping those who are less fortunate, and in the process they improve themselves and
hope to build a better world.
With 52 years of experience, serving over 900 clients from 18 towns in central and northern New Hampshire, Pemi-Baker Community Health is the home care provider of choice for Grafton County. Services include at-home healthcare (VNA), hospice and palliative care, on-site physical and occupational therapy and fitness memberships including a fitness gym and fitness classes in our 90-degree therapy pool. As a nonprofit, Pemi-Baker Community Health offers many free programs to the community including bereavement and caregiver support groups.
ASK Pemi-Baker, is a new program held at the Plymouth Regional Senior Center, every 2nd and 4th Thursdays from 11-12pm with a nurse and social worker on hand to answer any questions one might have.
Thank you to the Chocorua Masonic Lodge, in Holderness, for helping us continue to offer these free services!
