Please keep WB Robertson in your thoughts and prayers this Christmas.

One of our friends could use your thoughts and prayers. I have worked with Odie for as long as I can remember working for Logan PD. He is our Fire Chief now and he was hurt on a call this morning. (Gadrim)

We hope you get better friend (Logan Fire Chief) Brian K Robertson (Odie)

From His wife Angie:

Brian asked me to post an update on him to hopefully make it easier to inform everyone of what we know so far.
Brian was on a fire run earlier this morning and a tree fell on him. He has a fractured skull, brain bleed, right orbital bone crushed, and left broken wrist.
He has been talking some so that’s a great sign.
They just brought him back from CT and did more X-rays also. We are waiting on those results to find out if he needs surgery and to see if his shoulders and leg is ok.
Please say lots of prayers for him and our family and pray he gets back to what he loves soon.
Thanks to all of the amazing first responders that have been our family for years and checking on him. — with Brian K Robertson.

Michael Wootton, KYCH from Paramuthia #25, Athens Chapter #39, Council #15, and Commandery #15 is a artist in his spare time. In our discussions about our Lodge Experience, Mike offered to create these lecture paintings that now hang proudly in the Lodge Room. He debuted the last one last night at Paramuthia's Stated Meeting in front of 6 of our ODC candidates, back for their first meeting. Next time you are in the Lodge Room, take a look, they really are quite something.

The Brethren of Paramuthia #25 cordially invites all Masons, their extended family and friends to our annual Christmas party. Festivities begin at 6:00pm on Friday December 16th with a buffet style lite dinner and the arrival of Santa at 7:00pm.
Please RSVP by Thursday evening and let us know the age of the boys and girls that are coming so Santa is sure to have a gift. I'm sure he will have a few extra, but some help from his elves couldn't hurt.
If you would like to bring a covered dish and or desert to share, that will be welcomed as well. Please bring your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews and join us for the fun that is the holiday season.
Messages may also be left on the lodge phone @ 740-593-3640.

Brothern, Through a request for assistance from the Athens County Veterans Services, our lodge has decided to dedicate our labor and resources to assist military veterans that need help from their community. One of the requests we have the privilege to fulfill is the replacement of steps at the front door of a vets home with a new front porch and new steps that will provide a much safer solution. We have scheduled the work for Saturday June 11th starting at 9:00am. The job site is located just outside Athens and we are happy to have any Brothers from the area that would like to join us in helping this veteran. If you have time to spend in relief for this veteran, contact us and we will pass along the details so you can join us.

The Deputy Grand Master, Douglas N. Kaylor, will hold several meetings this summer to roll out plans for the 2016-2017 Masonic year.

All Ohio Freemasons are invited to attend – particularly the Masters and Wardens, DDGMs, DEOs, District Advisors, and Grand Lodge officers. Brethren should attend the meeting that best fits their schedules.

These meetings will be held in July and August so the Brethren should feel free to attend comfortably (though tastefully) dressed.

What Growing Up Around The Freemasons Has Taught Me

Worth a read. I do have to say, it is really nice seeing children in the Lodge during our family events. Let us all hope that our children say such nice things about us and our Lodge, someday.
