The Ohio Lodge of Research held its January meeting as a Lodge of Table Instruction on the campus of the Springfield Masonic Community. Twelve of the Master Masons residing on campus joined for the afternoon of food, fellowship, and education. Several confessed that this was their first table lodge and that they would like to attend more. Brother Rich Frederick, of Arts & Sciences Lodge No. 792, shared a paper about his experience of becoming a Freemason, and Worshipful Brother Alan Cook, of Lancaster Lodge No. 57, shared a paper about the development of the life boat and the United Grand Lodge of England’s sponsorship of several such crafts. Both were elected to active membership of the lodge in recognition of their papers.
