Leading Ohio Freemasonry through COVID-19
We continue to monitor the updates from our Governor and the Ohio Department of health. The latest announcement from Governor Mike DeWine introduced the Ohio Department of Health Stay Safe Ohio Order which remains in effect until 11:59pm May 29, 2020. Following this Order, I have extended the cancellation period of all in-person Ohio Masonic activities from May 10, to now remain in effect through May 31, 2020. These activities include but are not limited to Stated Meetings, Annual Inspections Ceremonies, Grand Master Receptions, Grand Master Class events and Special meetings of all Ohio Lodges holding allegiance to the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Ohio and to all organizations whose membership is predicated on Masonic membership, including district associations, craft clubs, temple companies, and appendant orders.

Freemasonry at its Best!
Crystal Bartlett is a freshman at Westfall high school she belongs to the band and they’re taking a trip to Disney World. Her father has medical problems and they have no money to send Crystal. Pickaway Lodge No. 23, Logan Elm Lodge No. 624, Heber Lodge No. 501, and new Holland Lodge No. 392 took up a collection and was enough to send Crystal on that trip. Amazing Brethren Thank You!

We’ve been too quiet about our fraternity!
Every Brother needs to become a spokesman for Freemasonry.
It’s important to talk with non-Masons about who we are and what we do.
Seventy-six percent of new Masons joined because it is tradition in their family, someone they respected was a Mason or their friends or co-workers are Masons.
A Brother who knows of a man that he feels would make a good Mason should talk to him about our fraternity.
Help ensure the future of our great fraternity and your lodge…REPLACE YOURSELF!
