Awards Night - Recap

On Wed., January 12th, 2011, John W. Barkley Lodge held its annual Awards Night to honor our 25, 50, 60, and 65 year members. We had a great dinner with our award recipients and their families. We were honored to have many Grand Lodge Officers present at this event including two District Education Officers, WB Bob Stands and WB Mark Bollinger, the Grand Chaplain of Ohio, RWB Robert Behner, our District Deputy Grand Master, RWB Steven Behm, and finally the Grand Master of Masons in Ohio, MWB Bradford A. Goebel.

It was truly an honor to have these distinguished individuals assist with our Awards Night ceremony. Thank you to all of them for coming out to Barkley Lodge that evening.

We had quite a few award recipients and in proper form, Grand Honor was extended to those eligible. This evening was capped off by an array of great desserts and I am happy to say that everyone had a great time.

Congratulations to all of our award recipients!

Past Masters Night – Recap

On Wed, December 22nd, we had our annual Past Masters Night celebration at John W. Barkley Lodge. This year we invited the ladies to the Lodge for a wonderful dinner. After dinner the Brethren retired into the Lodge where the Past Masters conferred the Fellow Craft degree on a candidate. We also had a speaker for our ladies. It was a great evening and the Past Masters once again prove that they have not lost their step in degree work!

We would like to thank everyone that helped prepare dinner/dessert as well as assist in the degree work.
