From the Masonic Service Association
At MSA’s Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana, at the Conference of Grand Masters of North America, Most Worshipful Brother Stewart L. Aronson, PGM-NH, was elected to succeed retiring Most Worshipful Brother Ray Vanden Berghe, PGM-NJ, as Executive Commissioner for the North Atlantic Division.
Most Worshipful Vanden Berghe was first elected to serve in 1997 and has been re-elected six times. His dedication to the Masonic Service Association is renowned. Brother Ray has promoted our Hospital Visitation Program relentlessly throughout the Northeast at lodges and Grand Lodges. He promises to continue regardless of his official role, and the fine Hospital Visitation Program in New Jersey is a testimony to his efforts.
Most Worshipful Aronson brings a wealth of knowledge to his position. Besides serving as Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of New Hampshire, 2013-2015, as president and CEO of New Hampshire MasoniCare, Brother Aronson was a principal force behind the transformation of the former Masonic Home into Evergreen Place. His abilities and organizational skills will serve MSA well.
