New Page Design: We are testing a new format for our web pages. The test layout may be viewed at our lodge domain www.Paramuthia25.org. Comments and suggestions may be made to testweb@athensmasons.org

Paramuthia Lodge #25 is celebrating the 200th anniversary of the granting of their charter from the Grand Lodge of Ohio. Our brethren at out Centennial Celebration created a time capsule box to leave messages and objects from that time to be opened during this bicentennial year. The contents were placed in a sealed copper box fashioned by one of our brothers who was a roofer and heating specialist. A sample of the box contents may be found in a Power Point presentation which will be displayed at the Bicentennial Celebration on Saturday, May 31, 2014. The presentation may be downloaded by clicking here. CAUTION! It is a large file and will take a long time to download on a slow Internet connection. If you are on dial-up Internet, you may not want to try. A book containing copies of the contents will be produced later in the year.

In addition, we are collecting objects to be placed in a new time capsule to be opened during our tricentennial in the year 3015. If you would like to contribute, send your contribution to the lodge at 12 West Carpenter Street, Athens, OH 45701 or contact Secretary Tim Jagers at tjagers "at" columbus.rr.com

Autism Pins
- Pins to support autism awareness have been created and are being sold by Paramuthia Lodge #25 thanks to an anonymous donation. Proceeds from the first batch are being used to send children with autism spectrum disorder to a summer camp sponsored by the local autism society. The pins are quite classy with the puzzle pieces logo for autism and the square and compasses. The current stock is sold out but we hope to have more in time for the Cambridge and Columbus One Day classes. We are getting inquiries from many other brothers and bodies interested in purchasing pins.

The last Grand Master's One Day Classes for our area will be Saturday, May 11 in Cambridge and Columbus.

Athens Council #15 will be hosting the combined cast with Bosworth and Hock Hocking Councils to portray the Super Excellent Master Degree on Friday, May 3, 7:00 PM.

Brother Howie Damron's Masonic Pride Tour: Brother Howie Damron of South Point and country music artist has written several songs on Masonic topics including a song written at the request of Grand Master Ronald Winnett to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Grand Lodge of Ohio. He performed this song at the 17th Masonic District Founder's Day dinner on Friday, January 4, 2008 which was very well received. This and other Masonic songs and one for the Order of DeMolay may be found on his new CD "The Masonic Touch." He will be traveling the State of Ohio and performing his Masonic songs throughout our bicentennial year. More information on his tour and obtaining his CD may be found at his web site.
