It is our belief that the Masons of yesterday made it possible for us to be here today by illustrating in their lives the ideals of Freemasonry. It is now our turn to bring these same ideals to our neighbors and friends, by our example.'

Brethren,

This book is actually useful for all levels of Lodge Leadership. RWB Hrinko is a friend WB William Reynolds and the District, having spoken at Savannah, Harmar, American Union and other Lodges. The interview would worth your time.

Chad Kopenski

Bro. Robert Johnson interviewed me about this new book. This book is designed to assist the Masonic Leader at all levels in learning more about the styles of leadership that are most effective in an all volunteer setting. It offers ways to improve the success of Masonic Leaders in all positions. That interview will be published on his Whence Came You Podcast on Sunday, July 5 at 9:30 PM CDT. Please take a listen. After then, I will share a direct link for future use on this page. The book is available from Macoy Masonic Publishers. Fraternally, Bro. Dan Hrinko

From the 1869 Grand Lodge of Ohio Proceedings:

On the 15th of November last, I laid the corner-stone of the
State Lunatic Asylum at Athens, in accordance with ancient
Masonic usage. The day was propitious, and large numbers of the craft from Athens and the neighboring towns were present. A very imposing procession was formed, and the ceremony was witnessed by thousands of the citizens of that section. An oration was delivered by Past Grand Master W. B. Thrall, which was listened to with profound attention by the-immense throng. The courteous and fraternal attentions extended to me on that occasion, by the brethren of Athens, will form one of the most pleasurable memories of my Masonic experience.

Hello Masonic bros in Athens area. Athens is my hometown grad AHS in 1968 OU a couple years. Does anyone remember Paul Brown ..that ran Sunnyvale Nursery and was a Mason back then ? I knew his son Robert , remember him being in demoley ....I had no idea what that or Masonry was all about. Anyhow Paul was really like a role model to me in several ways, I worked for him and respected him. His influence on me was a big factor in me joining the masons here in Piqua ....Warren # 24 ........I knew Wendell Rose too , slightly....great to see he is a PM just last May. So when I did a FB search for "masonic webmaster" the Athens lodge comes up ..I want to get down and see you guys....and will ....... LOVE your building !
Masonic Funeral Service for Brother Richard (Dick) Bobo of Paramuthia Lodge #25 will be held Thursday, April 19, 8 PM at Jagers Funeral Home.
According to RWB Bob Hadfield, tonight's inspection is postponed to a later date due to district policy regarding the current Level 2 snow emergencies in Athens and Washington Counties. Posted to 17th District page 2 hours ago.
Last night, Girl Scout Troop 51001 held a meeting at the Lodge. Approximately 30 girls worked with the owner of a local restaurant to make ravioli from scratch, set tables, and serve dinner to approximately 45 guests. Many of the guests said that they had lived in Athens for years and had never been inside the building. Many asked about Masonry and Order of Eastern Star and were impressed and excited about what they heard. The troop leaders were so grateful for our hospitality and are already talking about ways that we can work together in the future, like a lock-in or a service project. As a parent of one of the Girl Scouts and a proud member of Athens Masonic Bodies, I thank you all for the hospitality and support. At one point, the girls were singing camp songs together in the kitchen and afterwards, Eliza ran over to me and said how much she loved having her troop in 'her Lodge.' Her Lodge. Thank you very, very much. Chad
