    Anyone from Grand Lodge of Ohio

    Good news. I finally got an email from the GLoO. The brother whose items I have was raised in 1893. Unfortunately he passed in 1945, just 2 years after receiving his 50 year award. I am now going to send to the GLoO to either return it to the lodge for their historical display or to put it the...

    Anyone from Grand Lodge of Ohio

    I have been trying to get a call back from someone at the GLoO for a few months now without a return call. My wife drug me along garage sale shopping in January and I found a 50 year medal and plaque issued to a W.D Gardner from the GLoO. I asked the homeowner about them and he said they found...

    i am so glad to here this. Praise the Great Physician of the Universe. My mother battled oral cancer for 12 years. In 2010 she finally succumbed to not the cancer but from complications from cosmetic surgery to cover up some scars caused by the different surgeries.

    Litigation Discussion

    I would say it depends on the reason for litigation. Lets say someone drives a vehicle into your lodge building and then refuses to pay damages. Then yes, you should be able ti file against them. If its just filing against a clandestine lodge for receiving donations as a masonic lodge, then I...

    The long way home

    Beyond the founders reasoning's for no co-mingling, I fear it would become a point of dissension in a co-ed lodge. Think of the way you are presented during the 3 degrees :)

    Trying to become a mason

    When I was first introduced to Masonry, I too was an introvert. After meeting the brethren and spending a few months (4) with them I decided to petition the lodge. I had never felt more welcome by a group of people. As I was going through the degrees, it was apparent that I was not used to...

    Do you agree with the results of Annual Communications

    I also show that Recommendation 1 failed. The one that really concerns me is recommendation # 2, especially since Resolution # 12 passed. It seems that it is still at the Grand Secretaries discretion weather he wants to allow a convicted felon to be allowed, even though R#12 passed allowing it.

    What would you do?

    I am the SW for our lodge and having to make those decisions for next year. We have a few of our officers that do not come on a consistent basis at all. In fact, one has not made it since the first stated meeting after installation and then he left half way through the meeting. I have some newly...

    Memory work

    Although you should strive to be perfect, suitable is in the eyes of the brethren that are attending that night. I would say don't worry about it. Prompting will always be a part of this ritual
