After the meal, R.W.B. Shawn Johnson, Senior Grand Deacon of the Grand Lodge of Ohio presented the 50 and 65 year service pins and certificates.
All three degrees in one day at the Ohio Masonic Home. Time to start thinking about who would be a good candidate for the one day class. Brothers, sons, grandsons, and friends who have busy schedules and fearful of the examination after each degree may be good candidates for this option.
Petitions, with $160.00 check for degree fees, must be received by March 12 to give proper time for investigation and balloting.
Request a candidate petition from the Lodge Secretary.
