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.
