Oliver Lodge #38 AF&AM

I attended Lodge this evening and completed my obligation of serving as Chaplin; a position I have filled during the past year. We had the installation of offices and the Lodge Master from last year will serve as Chaplin this year. Our Masonic Lodge building is on the downtown City Square and one of the older buildings in town. The Lodge hall occupies the upper floor as shown in the picture with two separate businesses occupying the space on the street level. While the membership level has dropped considerably from  50 years ago, we still have a viable membership roll and participants. Our forebears were very farsighted in providing the rental income from the two business locations to assist with the maintenance cost of the entire building. We had a very tasty Chicken Dinner with our wives in the dining hall this evening prior to our meeting.
