A Special Thank You

The Ocean City Masonic Lodge No. 171 has donated $500,000 to Shore Medical Center in the name of Flora Baker to establish an Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Center. The program is made possible by a gift to the Ocean City Masonic group from Flora Baker and her husband Benjamin G. Baker, both deceased, who were residents of Ocean City from 1954 until their passing. During their lifetime, the Bakers, local hotel owners and operators, were great benefactors of Shore Medical Center. In honor of her husband Benjamin, Flora Baker made an endowment gift to the Masons earmarked for Alzheimer’s treatment.
