Where to begin? Due to the pandemic and the Grand Master edict , Council has been dark for the last several months. Unfortunately, the York Rite Festival, our annual inspection and other activities have been canceled due to the pandemic. Furtherrmore, the Memorial Day weekend roadside rest and the Diabetic Kids camp this summer have been canceled.
Also, due to the grandmasters edict, we were not able to have our regularly scheduled election and installation of officers. We will be having election at our first meeting in September. Additionally, because of family issues I will not be able to be masonically active for the unseeable future. Thus a new Illustrious Master will need to be elected at the next meeting. I would like to thank the officers and companions for all the dedication and support they have extended to me over the last two years. I am truly thankful for all the help and advice you all have given me.
Upcoming scheduled events as of now:
7/13/20 Arch Reunion Lima 7:00pm
8/13-20 Arch picnic Urbana 12:00 pm
I hope all of you are safe and healthy as we enter into the spring season. It is my hope and prayer that all of you and your families are in good health and safe from COVID-19. May the Great Architect of the Universe protect us all. As I write this article all council events and activities are scheduled as planned unless and informed otherwise by Grand Council our Cryptic calendar is as follows:
April 4th, Delphos inspection at Saint Mary’s 9:00am, RM
April 4th St. Mary’s inspection, 10:00am SM
April 14rh Lima inspection 7:30pm, RM
April 24th, Findlay inspection 7:30pm RM
April 20th Kenton inspection 7:30pm SM
April 29th North-Multi Council SuperX at Saint Mary’s 7:00pm
May 9th Northwest Ohio York Rite Festival at Findlay 8:00am
May 16th South-Multi SuperX at Troy 9:00am
Regarding Findlay’s inspection on April 24th, the planned dinner beforehand at 6:00pm has been cancelled based on health concerns due to COVID-19. I have made this decision. Additionally, we currently have two candidates receiving their cryptic degree through council as the council of NW Ohio York Rite Festival. It is my hope that we will have several more candidates receive their degrees.
Finally, we will be hosting the Memorial Day weekend roadside rest at northbound rest stop on I-75 just south of Findlay. This is our fundraiser to support the Diabetic Kids Camp. Please sign up for a four hour shift starting on Friday May 23rd. Shifts are 6pm to 10pm, 10pm- 2am, 2am-6am, 6am-10am, 10am-2pm, and 2pm-6pm. The final shift will be worked 2pm-6pm on Memorial Day. If you are interested in helping please call at 419-894-6448. Please help out in this most worthy and noble cause.
