Ogden Lodge Begins Planning 2nd Annual Charity Trail Run

Our first Charity Trail Run was so successful, we've already begun planning the Ogden Lodge 2nd Annual Charity Trail Run at Homer Lake tentatively set for September 14th.  The first big challenge is picking the charity.  In keeping with our goal last year, we decided to select a local charity, and the members this year decided they wanted to support a children's charity.  It was decided in our February Meeting that the proceeds from this year's race will be donated to a very worthy cause--the Crisis Nursery in Urbana, IL.

We will begin looking for sponsors, and putting up early registration information soon.  Please contact me if you'd be interested in being a sponsor of our event this year at and I'll send you some information. 

It's a great cause, it was a very fun event last year, and we hope those of you that participated last year and helped sponsor us will help us spread the word.

Ogden Lodge Sponsors IL-CHIP

The staff--set up and ready to roll

Ogden Lodge held an IL-CHIP program today. We had all kinds of help today and the event went off without a hitch--well other than the fact I failed to get a picture of any children being run through the ID stations.

Taking a break

Special thanks to our Master-Elect Steve Guess and PM of Homer Chuck Fritz for buying pizza for our help today. It was a lot of fun.

Young "Master" Ketchum made it clear today he intends to be a Mason one day

Congratulations to Ogden Lodge's Newly Elected Officers

Last night Ogden Lodge elected their officers for the 2013-14 year.  Congratulations to our new dais officers WM Steve Guess, SW Carl W. Lewis, and JW Denver Phelps.  I'll post the entire list once it's finalized.

We're working on the dates and times for the public installation, and I'll post it as soon as the details are finalized.  We'll be installing our officers in a joint installation with Homer Lodger No. 199 as we have in the past. 

Congratulations again!
