JANUARY 2018

January Thought:

Freemasonry started 300 years ago in 1717 in Europe. Many thousand men have been a part of this historical record. What has been your contribution to Freemasonry recently? Participation in your local Lodge or one of the appendant bodies would be a great start - or perhaps seeking our one or two candidates to join in 2018. Help celebrate the start of the next 300th year by making a contribution of Freemasonry.

January Quotes:

"Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbor, and let every new year find you a better man" Benjamin Franklin

"Write it on your heart that every day is a the best day of your life" Ralph Waldo Emerson

 OPPORTUNITY TO JOIN APPENDENT BODIES:

ANGOLA YORK RITE: A two Saturday, Tri-State Festival to bring in new candidates will be on Saturday's February 24 and March 3, 2018 in Bryan OH and Angola IN. Petitions are welcome anytime.
