Our inspection is past and once again the officers and brethren of Edenton lodge performed well. Bro. Worstell received a very good Master Mason degree. The official attendance count was 68 but it seemed there were more brethren in attendance than that. Dinner was pork, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans and corn, rolls and dessert. The Worshipful Master's 4H club served the dinner, helped park cars and cleaned up afterwards. They did a very good job. The lodge owes a debt of gratitude to the brethren of Amelia Lodge for supplying the rest of the Fellowcraft team for the second section of the degree. I am hoping to post a couple of pictures when I receive them. Now we can concentrate on doing degree work for the other three candidates we have going through right now. I hope to see you in lodge.

The inspection is less than a week away and it looks like we should be in good shape, if everyone comes that needs to. Back-up plans are being made. Amelia Lodge has volunteered to provide walkers for the non-speaking parts. We thank them wholeheartedly. It was a short meeting with very little business to discuss. We did vote on another petition and the vote was favorable. We'll set another Entered Apprentice degree at our next stated meeting so we can recover from the inspection. Our newest Fellowcraft returned his proficiency and is ready to go for our inspection. The lodge is sponsoring an athlete to the Ohio Special Olympics again this year. The opening ceremony is Friday, June 26, at the Jesse Owens Sports Complex on the Ohio State University campus. Masons in aprons will lead off the parade. The Ohio Masonic Home also has some events coming up. The Miracle Miles for Memory Care golf classic will be Monday, June 1, at Wedgewood Golf Course in Powell, Ohio. Contact Mark Harris at (419) 878-1814 for details. Masonic Home Day is Sunday, June 7 and the Fourth Annual Miracle Miles for Memory Care Road Rally is Saturday, August 22, with starting points around the state. Contact Dan Shirk (937) 926-4305 for more details. There will also be an informational dinner at the F.O.E. hall in Georgetown on May 27. Reservations are required and can be made by calling (888) 248-2664 or by visiting omhnights.kintera.org. This would be a good time to learn what the mission of the Home is, services they provide and how contributions to the Home are being used. The Worshipful Master set May30 from 1 til 5 as an open house at the lodge and Awards and Widows night will follow from 6 til ? More details will follow. Enjoy the warming weather and I hope to see you in lodge.
