Welcome to our site. Stated meetings are the third Saturday of every month at 8:00 PM

November, 2014

The election of officers was held at the November meeting and the new Worshipful Master is Chris Hunt.  Congratulations to Chris.  There was also a petition for the degrees and an affiliation petition turned in.  The lodge is continuing to grow.  Bro. Gene Bell is working diligently on putting together another Christmas party. It will be December 13 at 6:30 PM.  Rumor has it that Santa will again make an appearance.  The lodge will be conferring the Entered Apprentice degree on one candidate on December 4 at 7:00 PM.  Our new Master will have a closed installation of officers at our stated meeting in December.  A couple of brothers have installed railing on the new ramp at the front door of the lodge, which will make it easier to get into the lodge.  The lodge is supporting the "Sweat for a Vet - They Sweat for us" program, which will supply sweat pants for veterans in the Veteran's home in Georgetown.  I mentioned in last month's post that Grand Lodge voted to allow games of chance in the lodge.  The Grand Master has issued an edict to delay this until the middle of January so Grand Lodge can determine the ramifications on the lodges.  We'll see what happens.  And remember, if you have not paid your dues yet, do so soon.  December 31 is the deadline to have them paid and not be suspended.  Thanks. 

October, 2014

Our meeting was held on the 18th.  We received a new petition and, if all goes well, we'll be starting up some more degree work.  This works out pretty good since our inspection will be in March in the Master Mason degree.  We had another pancake breakfast at Stonelick lake and made a little money, though how much still has to be determined.  The Worshipful Master reported on the Grand Lodge session and the biggest news is that the brethren voted to allow gambling and games of chance per the Ohio revised code.  Since then the Grand Master has issued an edict that prevents a lodge from doing anything until the Grand Lodge has studied the ramifications.  The edict expires the first of January.  He also reported that the new District Deputy Grand Master for our district will be Rodney Kirker from Georgetown lodge.  Bob Welch from Milford and Jim Cranfill from J.B. Covert are the new District Education Officers.  Also, remember that your dues of $55 are due by our stated meeting in November which this year is on the 15th.  You can pay them at the meeting if you like.
WBro. Chris Hunt announced that Batavia Chapter RAM is selling hockey tickets for the Cincinnati Cyclones game on November 21.  They are $13 each and $5 from each ticket goes to the Chapter as a fundraiser.  Our lodge bought 4 tickets to be donated to someone who cannot otherwise afford to attend.  If you are interested in purchasing some tickets let me know at edenton332@yahoo.com or call the secretary.
The Thanksgiving raising will be at Amelia lodge starting at 6:00 AM.  The lodge Christmas party will be on December 13 starting at 6:00 PM.  That's it for now.  I hope to see you at the next meeting.  Remember, it will be the election of officers.
