The Ohio Masonic Home 39th Annual Christmas Dinner party will be held on Monday, December 4, 2017 at New Carlisle Masonic Temple with dinner scheduled for 6:15 p.m.
We invite all Masons and their families (especially children and/or grandchildren) to join us for this traditional holiday event to entertain and honor Ohio Masonic Home residents, and to once again have a visit from that jolly old fellow known as St. Nick, or better known as Santa Claus.
The entré (ham loaves), drinks, and bread will be furnished. We ask all those attending to bring a salad or dessert or dish of your choice.
Please call or email Ron Seymour, Bill Berry or Jay Maxwell to let us know how many will be coming.
2017-2018 Dues are $65
Dues billing will be mailed September 1. A permanent Plastic Membership Card was used last year and will be your dues card for several years. New dues cards will not be issued this year. Moving to this type of card has resulted in a significant cost savings. A web-based application displays any Ohio Mason’s current membership status when visiting a Lodge.
June 8 Stated Meeting 7 PM: Many Masons have trouble finding their white apron that was presented to them in the Entered Apprentice Degree. Because of this many years ago we asked our members to find their white apron and wear it at our June stated meeting. This has become an annual event and we invite Masons from other lodges to join us in this tradition by wearing their white apron at our June Stated meeting. A free Dinner will be served prior to the meeting at 6 PM. Dress: Summer casual.
New Carlisle Lodge will host a Masonic Family Night, Friday May 19 with a free dinner at 6:30 p.m. and we cordially invite all to attend.

We will also recognize exemplary service by a youth in the Tecumseh, Bethel, and Northwestern School Districts.
