As published in the Warren Times Observer on November 16, 2016:  

On Friday, November 11, 2016, North Star Lodge No. 241 of Warren made a visit to the Warren Manor nursing facility in Pleasant Township, to honor 18 residents who currently reside there and have served in our armed forces.

The Lodge presented each veteran with a pin from the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania and recognized them for their service.

Room visits were made to those who could not attend.  Each veteran shared some of their favorite and most memorable moments encountered during their time in the service.  The Lodge also held a presentation for all those prisoners of war and missing in action with the Missing Man Table.  The night ended with refreshments and Taps played by Bro. Ryan Knopf, Worshipful Master, which helped all in attendance to remember those who have served this wonderful country.

North Star Lodge No. 241 would like to thank all past and present military members who have served their country.  The Warren Manor would also like to thank all who served and would like to send the Masons a special thank you for putting on a heartwarming program which the residents greatly enjoyed.

Bro. Ryan Knopf, WM, presents a pin to Veteran John Sanders, who served in the Army from 1953-1955 as a military policeman at the time of the Korean Conflict.
