2015 Awards and Widows

May 30 was set aside to honor our long time members and the wives of our deceased members.  We started with a trip to the Continental Manor nursing home in Blanchester to present WB Herman E. Liming with a 60 year service award at 5 PM.  We caught him eating supper but were able to present him his award.  Since RWB Rodney Kirker was unable to attend RWB George West filled in to represent Grand Lodge.  Below is a picture of WB Liming receiving his award.

The Worshipful Master also presented WB Liming with the John McCollum Award for Masonic Excellence.  This award is presented to brethren that have served the lodge in many ways over the years and is named after the first recipient, WB John McCollum, who made the trip with us.

At 6:30 the dinner preceding the Awards and Widows night started, with fried chicken, mashed potatoes, various potluck dishes and desserts and iced tea, soft drinks and coffee.  After everyone had eaten the Worshipful Master started making presentations.  One of our new 50 year members, Bro.

May, 2015

After taking care of our normal business discussion centered on our upcoming open house and awards and widows night on May 30.  The lodge hall will be open to the public from 1 to 5 PM with grilled hotdogs and refreshments.  Then we will have our awards and widows night starting at 6 PM with dinner and a magician.  WB Herman Liming is due to get his 60 year service award and Bro's. Chalmer Suttles and Norman Nichols will receive their 50 year awards.  We are also going to try to have at least a couple of pancake breakfasts at Stonelick lake again.  Dates are to be determined.  The Worshipful Master set 6:30 PM prior to our next stated meeting to have a Master Mason degree.  I would also like to add that our Lodge Educational Officer has been presenting some interesting programs on Masonic philosophy, with this meeting's program on William Preston, the writer of the Masonic lectures.  He promises these programs will continue.  Some of our members attended the reconsecration of Clermont Social Lodge in Williamsburg for their 200th anniversary.  It was a fun morning.  I hope to see you at lodge.
