Saturday the Day of Degrees!
All 3 Degrees Conferred by J. B. Covert Lodge
September 12th, 2020
Degree Captains:

Entered Apprentice- WB Walter Disney
Fellow Craft- Bro. Roy Elliott
Master Mason- Bro.Tom Lind

Class Director- WB Daniel Campbell
While none of us enjoy wearing the masks we do recognize that due to the number of Masons who will participate in these degrees that it is probably a good thing for all of us to wear a mask. Disposable masks are available at the lodge and we strongly encourage you to consider the health and age of your Brothers and wear one for the day while we participate in the degrees together.
Join us this Saturday September the 12th at 8:00 am for our Day of Degrees!

The day will begin with an all Past Master Cast conferring the Entered Apprentice Degree.

The Fellow Craft Degree led by Bro. Roy Elliott will follow after a short break and will conclude before lunch.

During our lunch break we'll have a short program about resources available to all Brothers.

The Master Mason Degree led by Bro. Tom Lind will begin after lunch and after the degree we will finish out the day with some follow up education by our Lodge Education Officer before closing for the day.

It's time to pay your dues for 2021
and perhaps make a donation to our
Building Campaign or our Charitable Campaigns
Every member of the lodge received a mailing in the beginning of June with information about our need to repair several water related issues in our building and an explanation of why we included the 2021 dues notice.

We've already received over 55% of our 2021 dues and a number of donations, but we still need yours!

If you haven't opened that mailing, please take a moment to read it and reply.
At the May Stated Meeting a motion to fix our water problems passed after a detailed plan was presented by the Building Remodeling and Improvement Committee.

You can read more about this plan by checking your mailbox for a special mailing as well as clicking here.
You can make a credit card donation right now and pay your 2021 Dues by clicking on this link- Donate to Building Campaign
Thank you to the numerous Brothers who have donated Time, Talent, & Treasure already!

We have already received nearly $16,000 and nearly 250 man hours of volunteer time!
Reserve Your Seat Today!
With the extensive remodeling that is happening in the dining room we began to notice how our old tables and chairs were looking pretty worn out. So the lodge is going to invest in some replacements.

You can reserve your table and have a seat at all of our events for a donation of $350 for a full table and 8 chairs or reserve a single seat for $30.

Buy an engraved brick!
A part of the fundraising for this campaign will include a limited edition engraved brick which will be installed in our new patio area.

There are 3 different sizes of bricks available for purchase:

Small 4”x 8” for $100

Medium 8” x 8” for $250

Large 12” x 12” for $500

You can memorialize members of your family in this area that will soon become a favorite hangout for lodge members and their families!

Update From The Grand Lodge Of Ohio
A limited edition coin has been created commemorating this extraordinary year to raise funds and awareness for the Grand Lodge Charitable Relief Fund.

Please see your District Deputy Grand Master if you would like to make a $10. donation or more to receive a coin.

Remember there are 3 basic types of Masons - Active - Practicing - Sustaining. We need all members to try and be members of 2 of the types simultaneously!


Active members are the Brothers who are at every meeting or taking on a committee/officer roll.

Practicing are Masons who make a conscious effort daily to live the lessons of our ritual in their daily lives.

Sustaining members are those who donate to the lodge operations on top of or in lieu of being able to actively participate.

Masonry thrives on Time-Talent-Treasure and we’re asking you to consider donating at least two of the three as we start our next 150 years!
