“The more I come in contact with the work of the Masonic Fraternity the more impressed I am by the great charitable work and the great practical good which we are carrying out, especially in that line which is so close to my heart – the care of little children.”
~ Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 32nd U.S. President (1933-1945)
