Mahoning Masons

          A SPECIAL WELCOME to our new members following our Spring Class.  If you happen to see any of our new members out and about, congratulate them and welcome them.

THE ANNUAL ELECTION OF OFFICERS took place at our April Stated meeting.  INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS will be held at our May Stated Meeting at the Warren Masonic Temple.  Due to COVID this will be a member only meeting starting at 7:30 pm.  Again, there will NOT be a dinner before this meeting.

          AS OF THIS WRITING, the Worker’s Banquet scheduled for Thursday, May 20, 2021 is still on track.  Look for an invitation in the mail soon.  Once I find out from the banquet hall how many can be safely seated those invitations will go out.  If you get an invitation and plan to attend, please return the RSVP immediately.  If you do not get an invitation, please know that we had to draw the line somewhere due to COVID and hopefully next year we will be back to normal.

OHIO COUNCIL OF DELIBERATION will be held this year in Columbus on June 12th.  Invitations will be mailed in early April.   If you believe you are a member of the Ohio Council of Deliberation and did not receive an invitation, please call the Secretary as soon as possible.  Honored there will be S.P. Michael J. Waldern from 2020 and S.P. Charles J. Vadino for 2021 who will be presented with their Meritorious Service Award cap and jewel during a ceremony following dinner.  Council members are urged to attend and share this special time with these deserving Brethren.  The top three officers in each body as of the May Installation of Officers are expected to attend.

                    THE ANNUAL PICNIC will again be held this year on Thursday, July 22nd  at Argus Park beginning at 6:30 pm.  Be sure to bring a main dish or dessert to share and come ready to eat and enjoy each other’s company.  Hopefully, the cold and snow of this past winter will just be a very, very distant memory by then.  While Scottish Rite is hosting this event, please note that all former tenants of the Youngstown Masonic Temple are invited to attend.
