For those that may not have heard W.Bro. Doug Brummett passed away. His Masonic service was on June 8. He will be missed by all who knew him. In other news, the lodge sign by the road deteriorated to the point it was hanging on by one bracket. A couple of the brethren are working on getting a new one made and hung soon. On August 3 the lodge will have a pancake breakfast at the campground at Stonelick Lake to try and raise a little money for the lodge and the Friends of Stonelick, who do so much to keep the park, especially the campground, looking nice. We will meet at around 7:30 AM and start serving at 8:00. We are also going to have a family cookout at the lodge at 2:00 PM on August 10. The lodge will cook up some burgers and dogs and ask the members to bring a covered dish and a dessert to share. We will also supply the drinks. There will be activities for the kids and adults and the lodge will be open if you would like to look around. If you would like to attend, please contact Bro. Gene Bell at 513-310-1969 so we can get an accurate count. He will also answer any questions you might have.
At the meeting the lodge presented Brother John McCollum the first lodge Lifetime Acheivement Award in recognition of his long time support of the lodge. It was also decided that future awards will be named after WBro. McCollum. I will post a picture when I can get one.
I hope to see you at the next meeting.
