No Masonic Meeting Tonight


Our Worshipful asked that a notice be given.

So that you do not travel to the Masonic Temple tonight and find an empty parking lot. Please be aware that there is no Clinton Lodge # 47 Masonic meeting tonight. We are dark due to it being Christmas Week.

Wishing you and your family a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy (safe) New Year

See you at the next meeting on Jan 10th, 2017

Opening in EA tonight


We are opening in the EA tonight to confer the EA degree on our newest candidate. Candidates should be at the lodge at least 30-45 minutes prior to the start of the meeting to go over some things and get prepped for the degree.

Upcoming Meeting on the 23rd

Just a heads up brothers,
The upcoming meeting on the 23rd will be the last meeting where we are dark. We will be opening in EA, but we will not be doing degree work. I was informed by WB Sterzbach that the dress code will be business casual so you can wear your lodge shirts if you have them. I will also be doing a lodge education program so be ready to learn! See you at lodge! If any brothers are not subscribed to the page, please pass this on.

Thanks. ~ Bro. Kris

Join us for a Picnic on the 26th

Come on out to the lodge on June 26th, 2016 for the Clinton Lodge Picnic. WB Sterzbach has been working hard to put this event together so let us show our support by coming out! Bring your family, bring your friends. Even bring friends who are not Masons but are maybe deciding to join. All are welcome. Petitions will be on hand should anyone want one. There will also be a bouncy castle on site as well for the kids. The food has been donated but we ask that each family bring some kind of dessert or other type of food as well so we can make sure there is enough food everyone.

Hope to see you all there. If you have any questions, please contact the lodge for more details.

The Lodge’s Website Has Moved Hosts

Some in the lodge understand that our lodge’s website’s host was set to expire our account in a few days. I worked behind the scenes for the past few weeks getting everything ready to transport to our new host at They even let us keep our domain which was a nice incentive as well.

I will be looking over all of the pages making sure the site’s structure and images all made it over. Stay tuned in case some places blink out. It’s only temporary.

Lodge Meeting during Holy Week


As many of you are already aware, this is Holy Week. While we are having a meeting tonight at the regular time, please understand that as per the bylaws, we are not able to conduct any new business, degree work or LEO presentations. The meeting will most likely be rather short so keep that in mind.
