Table Lodge on Wednesday, June 28th

Brothers all,
I am very excited to announce that Wauseon Lodge #349 is holding their annual Table Lodge on Wednesday, June 28th and they are cordially inviting the Brothers of the Fabulous 5th Masonic District to join them.  If you've never attended a Table Lodge before, you'll want to be there. What a great Masonic experience! The evening begins at 6:00pm with a Beef and Noodles dinner followed by a Tyled Table Lodge of Entered Apprentices.  The dress for this event is business casual. If you would like to attend this fun night of Freemasonry, please RSVP to by June 21st so the Brothers of the 349 will know how many to expect.  Let's all come out and help Wauseon Lodge turn out the lights before we go dark for the summer.
Hope to see you there!
RWB Martin L. Lawrence, DDGM
