Grand Master's One Day Class - 5th Masonic District

Hello Brothers,

Here is the information on the one day class we had talked about during the Past Master meeting.  

We would like every candidate to go through your door before coming to the one day class. This will make them more at home in your lodge and more likely to attend your meeting in the future.  This is not mandatory, but conferring the EA degree in your own lodge beforehand would be ideal. 

Candidate information - Please look in the Beacon that was sent out this month. It has a removable brochure and petition for degrees in it that is perfect for the one day class. This link is for a downloadable PDF version

Application for membership is open to men who: Have been an Ohio resident for at least six months. Are at least 19 years old by March 25 (if only attending the one day class, otherwise 19 years old if conferring the EA degree beforehand). Have a belief in a Supreme Being. Live a good moral and social life. Do not advocate the overthrow of the government. Can read and write English.

It is important that everyone has been voted on in Lodge before the 3rd week of February and that Grand Lodge has the candidate information in MORI before the class, if not they can’t go.

You are allowed to vote on candidates at special meeting for the one day class. 

Your lodge may need to have a special meeting to vote and a special meeting to confirm the candidate before the class. 

The sponsoring lodge will need to provide the following at the class on March 25th 2017 at 8 am: Candidates information, Apron, Bible, and a person from your lodge to stand with the candidate.

We will be providing breakfast in the morning and lunch in the afternoon. 

There are a few spots still open to fill all of the degrees, if you would like to help out that day. Please contact me at jtodenkirk@yahoo.com

Thank you, 
Bro. Jeffrey Odenkirk M.M.
Your Chairman
