There was not a lot of business to take care of at our March meeting. The "More Light Night" was discussed. Please see the prior post for more information. We finally received the dimit of a brother and he is now a member of our lodge. We also received a petition for reinstatement. March 25 is the Grand Master's one day class this year. We have two candidates that are attending as well as some of our brethren taking part in the degree work. The Lodge Education Officer presented a program on the two paths everyone has to choose from to travel through life. One is hard, tedious and beset with dangers and temptations. But at the end is peace and happiness. The other path is easy, filled with sunshine, music and pleasure. This path leads to despair and death. All the great religions speak of these two paths. Buddhism is eloquent in its view of these paths. "The virtuous man is happy in this world, and he is happy in the next; he is happy in both. He is happy when he thinks of the good he has done; he is still more happy when he is on the good path. Earnestness is the path of immortality (Nirvana). Thoughtlessness is the path of death. Those who are in earnest do not die, but those who are in thoughtlessness are as if dead already. Fools follow vanity. The wise man keeps earnestness as his best jewel." These thoughts are around 2600 years old and are still true today. I hope to see you in lodge.

We started off with a special meeting on Feb. 18 with an Entered Apprentice degree. Our officers did a fine job. We closed the lodge and opened at 8:00 after some refreshments downstairs. We went to refreshment and opened a Fellowcraft degree to examine a brother in that degree. We then went back to the EA lodge and conducted our regular business. We then heard from Bro. Rodney Epperson from the Ohio Masonic Home about changes in the services provided to Masons, their widows and orphans. If you need any help from the home, which includes helping you stay in your home, contact the lodge and more information will be provided. The upcoming one day class was discussed and our lodge will have 2 candidates there to complete their degrees. On March 11 at 7:00 PM we will be doing a Master Mason degree on a brother. The Lodge Education Officer has set up an educational night on April 1 at 7:00 PM to hear from a brother from Scotland about Masonry there. He is said to be an entertaining speaker. We are also hoping to get a large turnout of our brethren for Goshen lodge's inspection on April 21. Since this is the last inspection we could keep the traveling award until the next inspection season. The lodge is experiencing a burst of enthusiasm. Come join us.
