We now know who is taking over the Masonic Children’s Home in Murphysboro. The United Methodist Children’s Home is taking over April 1st. At a press conference yesterday, the head of the Mt Vernon group John Shadowens says there will be little change but eventually he’d like to introduce some of the programming done in Mt Vernon. It was also announced that the 15 children and 15 staff at the Masonic Home will remain.
