                    Attention all Masons

     On September 9th, 2017, Oberlin Lodge #380 will be hosting the annual Lorain County Blue Lodge Association Outdoor Raising.  Oberlin Lodge is the only one in the district with an outdoor area where the 2nd Section of the Master Mason Degree can be performed!  Come on out for this once-a-year event and witness the outdoor raising of a new Master Mason!  As you all know, it takes all of the Officers of the Lodge and many others to put on a Master Mason Degree, so we need volunteers for speaking parts, non-speaking parts, and members of the Fellowcraft team.  If you’d like to volunteer for a part or if you have any questions about this event, contact WB Jim Cain at 440-864-3705 or WB Patrick Spears at 440-522-8041.  We’d greatly appreciate any volunteers for parts!

    Donuts and coffee will be provided in the morning, as well a lunch in the afternoon after the Degree; both for a voluntary donation.  Dress for this event is business casual, but be mindful of the weather when choosing your footwear for the 2nd Section; last year it was quite muddy out there!  Registration will open at 9:00 AM and the gavel drops for the 1st Section at 9:45 AM sharp!  The address for Oberlin Lodge is 12354 Leavitt Road, Oberlin, OH 44074.

 I hope to see lots of brethren at Oberlin Lodge that morning, so be there and be square!

Donations this year went to our local Boy Scouts council, Job's Daughters and Demolay boys. Thanks one and all!


  Oberlin Lodge also sponsored another car show at Oberlin Drug Mart on August 13th, benefiting the Depot Park Playground for Special Needs Children in Oberlin. A donation of $555.00 was given to the city of Oberlin to help purchase new inclusive playground equipment.

Powell Quote:

 
    When in England at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of empire building by George Bush.
   He answered by saying that, "Over the years, the United States has sent many of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those that did not return."
 
      It became very quiet in the room !
