With the recent increase of Covid cases in the area, the stated meeting for October 20th is cancelled. The next meeting will be held on November 3rd which is also the annual meeting and elections. Stay safe everyone!
As Masons return to “work” everywhere, it should be noted, that another very special group returns to their “work” which every Mason should applaud, endorse and support. That group is, Job’s Daughters.
This year (e.g., 2020) marks their 100th anniversary since founded by Mrs. Ethel T. Wead Mick in Omaha, Nebraska in 1920. They take their teaching from the story of Job and his trials, and in particular, to a reference in the 42nd Chapter which says…
“And in all the land were no women found so fair as the Daughters of Job.”

Grand Master Newton has recently issued an edict concerning meeting during the Covid outbreak. The edict bases meeting protocol on the Ohio Public Safety Advisory System.
