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

This is open to ALL Masonic Organizations, bodies and their families. See you there!
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.
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 Hosting24.com. 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.
~Kris, Webmaster, LEO 2015-16
The Worshipful Master and the rest ofClinton Lodge thanks all who participated in the 1st ever gun raffle for Clinton Lodge #47. Your participating in this has made it a huge success. Thanks to all who sold the tickets as well as those who purchased them. We drew two winners this past Saturday, April 9th at our Monthly Lodge Breakfast. Given the weather conditions, we understand if you could not make it.
Our winners are as follows:
Bro. Joe Birch received 1st Place and has chosen a Henry Rifle
Bro. Bob Candle received second place and will have his choice of a handgun.
Please check the website, our Facebook page and our regular meetings for other upcoming events like this in the future. We hope to continue fun things like this.
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.
By order of the Grand Lodge of Ohio:
As of 02-23-2015, the doors of the lodge will be locked at the start of lodge, or 7:30PM. This is due to a recent event in Minnesota, that was thankfully thwarted before any damage can be done.
If you arrive late, you must call the lodge’s phone number. There is a phone by the Tyler’s desk so he will be able to answer and let you in.
Be aware that the lodge may up the security at a later date. Another notice will be posted when if or when that happens.
A word from the Master:
We will be opening Lodge in the Entered Apprentice degree Tuesday night February 23rd at 7:30 pm to confer the EA degree our newest member.
Fraternally WB Steve
The DDGM has asked me to put information on the 21st Masonic District Website regarding the Charitable Gambling for the Lodges. For those that do not know, they passed the law that allows Charitable Gambling for the Lodges with some restrictions.
For those that also do not know, I handle the 21st Masonic District Website in addition to this one. I have put up documents and information regarding the rules and regulations for Gambling within the Lodge. Please read them, download them and any questions, you can contact the Lodge Secretary or the DDGM through the 21st District website.
