Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 28, 2016

The Masonic cornerstone ceremony is a time-honored tradition which has taken place for hundreds of years in the United States of America. In 1944, at the height of World War II, Board approval was sought for the building of Shriners Hospitals for Children — Los Angeles. With time, patience, and determination, the Shriners of Al Malaikah temple raised 1.5 million dollars, and thus began their legacy of care for children in need. Under the guide of Potentate Virgil Frizzell the Cornerstone was laid atop the foundation at the corner of Geneva St. and Commonwealth Ave. in 1950.

Now after 62 years, Shriners Hospital for Children — Los Angeles (SHC-LA) will be moving to a brand new state-of-the-art medical center located in Pasadena. To celebrate the transition, SHC-LA leadership alongside with officers of the California Grand Lodge, and the Chairman of the Board will perform a traditional ceremony post removal of the hospital’s cornerstone.

The highlight of the event will be the opening of a time capsule that was placed inside on June 19, 1950. This public ceremony will be one step closer to the hospital’s transition to the new Shriners for Children Medical Center (SFCMC) scheduled to open in summer of 2017.
