ARK OF THE COVENANT - An Historic and Masonic Symbol of Deity.

"Within Freemasonry, it is sometimes easy to get so caught up in memorizing our many symbols, that we actually forget what they symbolize. We learn that the 3 columns represent Wisdom, Strength and Beauty...and believe that once we have learned it as such, it ends there.

Does it?"

Why is the Ark of the Covenant important to Freemasons?

Today we commemorate the Attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, the entry point of the United States into World War II.

Many military and civilian leaders who were Masons were already on the scene prior to the war or emerged during the war. Some of these famous masons included FDR, Winston Churchill, and General Douglas MacArthur. It also includes many brothers who played a significant role during the war as well as those within the Masonic fraternity and beyond who paid the price for the freedoms that many of us continue to enjoy.

There is no real way to know the number of masons who were killed during the attack on Pearl Harbor or how many, Mason or otherwise, acted with true heroism during the attack. What is for certain is the 2,403 people lost their lives that day and not until the events of September 11th were so many lost from an attack on American soil.

To all who served on December 7th, 1941 and who lost loved ones on that day, we thank you for your service and sacrifice.

Brethren; It was brought up at tonight’s business meeting that some in the community have misunderstood recent legal notices in the Daily Iowegian regarding a property sale in Cincinnati.

Jackson Lodge #42 has not, will not, and is not suing the city of Cincinnati, the Cincinnati Fire Department, or any one at all for that matter.

For clarification - Jackson Lodge inherited the Cincinnati post office and the property it sat upon. After discussion with the postmaster and members of the Lodge, it was decided that it would be in the best interests of all parties for the post office to relocate due to the condition of the building. Jackson Lodge then decided to sell the property.

During the sale process, it was discovered that when Jackson Lodge inherited the property, the title/abstract to the property was rewritten. In doing so, the abstracting company made a typo which excluded a 12” wide strip down the middle of the property from the legal description.

In order to clear the title for sale, Jackson Lodge had to file what is known as a “quit claim” deed to re-add the 12” strip back onto the abstract. Essentially we published a letter asking the last prior owner of the property, a man who died 130 years ago, if that 12” strip belonged to him or the Lodge we inherited it from. (We’d be just as surprised as anyone else if he answered.)

Rest assured we are not tied up in any litigious activity. What has been seen in the paper is a legal formality to correct a typo by the abstract company. Although it is nice to be a topic of conversation around town again.

Here's today's Throwback Thursday from the January 29, 1963 edition of the Centerville Iowegian and Citizen. Here we're given a wonderful recap of that year's officer installation for Rainbow Girls, a youth organization that once met in the Masonic Temple on the Centerville Square.
