Greetings from Findlay Assembly No. 173,
Like many of our Masonic groups, COVID has put a wrench in our meeting in person. We are staying in touch via Zoom, and we are working on a service project, making ornaments for residents for a couple of our nursing homes in town. The girls are working on them from home. I will porch pick them up and get them delivered. We are remembering those who may be struggling with the holidays, especially our nursing home residents that are not allowed to have visitors. We did manage to fit in an initiation on October 17th, with several Toledo and Fremont Assemblies, just prior to our county and several others turning to level red. We're grateful, as we initiated 5 girls among the districts. It certainly was not our traditional ritualistic floor work, but it was still beautiful and met social distancing and mask requirements and everyone remained safe and healthy. We welcome Lily Payton to our Assembly, she joins us from Upper Sandusky. We are so excited to have her with us.
Like all of you, many of our plans are on hold, but we are hoping to be able to get in an installation of officers after the first of the year and on March 14 we are to host the Grand Reception for our Grand Officers.
We would like to extend our sincere condolences to Lori Schmidt, Grand Deputy for District 8 on the loss of her father to COVID and to the Leatherman family on the loss of Sheri’s father (Mia and Abby’s grandfather) also to COVID.
Blessings to you and your family!
Happy New Year!
