Special events include barbecues, flea markets, art exhibits, dances, day trips and classes for those interested in pursuing new hobbies.

One resident describes it best, “After I raised my family, my home began to feel very much like an empty nest. And it was too difficult for me to manage my home and household responsibilities. Coming to Browning was just like coming home again. There are people to share a laugh with and plenty to keep me busy. On top of that, somebody else besides me does the cooking and cleaning! It’s really wonderful.”

“After spending my life mowing lawns and shoveling snow, I wanted something better. I wanted the freedom to come and go and do what I want. I found it here at Browning Masonic Community. I enjoy the walking path. There are nice areas to sit and a gazebo where you can relax and enjoy the breeze.”
