Members of the Sam Davis Masonic Lodge # 661 located in Smyrna, TN donated $1500.00 from their recent pancake breakfast to The Tennessee Fisher House Foundation.

Sam Davis Masonic Lodge # 661 is a Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons operating within the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Tennessee. The mission of Freemasonry is to promote a way of life that binds like minded men in a worldwide brotherhood that transcends all religious, ethnic, cultural, social and educational differences by teaching the great principles of Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth and by the outward expression of these, through its fellowship, its compassion and its concerns to find ways in which to serve God, family, country, neighbors and self.

The Tennessee Fisher House is located on the campus of The Alvin C. York Veterans Administration Medical Center in Murfreesboro. The best medicine for those receiving care is having their families with them without having to worry about lodging nor dining expenses. The donations received help provide all the comforts of a real home, saving Veterans’ families thousands of dollars in out of pocket costs.

York VA Medical Center. The house is beautifully furnished and features a shared, fully equipped kitchen, laundry room, dining room, living room, sunroom, and a porch. The bedroom suites all have private bathrooms for privacy and comfort. For Inquiries about being a guest at The Tennessee Fisher House contact the House Manager in advance by calling 615-225-5758.
