OK, we’re a little early. The calendar might disagree, but the weather says it all. Just drive around slowly with the windows down. You can see kids playing, the aroma of BBQ is everywhere, and exercisers are wearing out their tennis shoes while swatting mosquitoes. That’s a wonderful difference from the Artic ice storm that was January.
This year both weather and work have combined to make our planned meeting schedule more haphazard than routine. We’ve had to cancel meetings for both reasons, and rearrange activities to properly take care of business. One unfortunate cancellation was our dinner and meeting scheduled for this Wednesday, June 18th. As a result, our next meeting will be Wednesday, September 3, 2014.
Every year the Deputy Grand Master conducts a series of meetings, called Roll Out Programs, to bring his message to the membership. This year’s DGM, RWB Steven Cokonougher, is holding a meeting in each of Ohio’s 25 Masonic Districts. This year’s edition is structured as a Town Hall meeting, with the ladies welcome. The meeting for the 15th District is reflected below, and is the last in the series. If you are unable to attend that session, the complete list can be found at http://www.freemason.com/.
There are a number of calendar listings to note.
