OMH Campuses Dedicate Veterans Monuments

On Saturday, July 7, at 10:00 a.m., Ohio Masonic brethren and guests from around northwest Ohio joined Grand Lodge Officers to dedicate a Veterans Memorial monument honoring our Masonic Military Veterans at Browning Masonic Community. Later that day at 2:00 p.m., the program was repeated as the Grand Lodge Officers dedicated a second Veterans Memorial monument at Western Reserve Masonic Community.

Eric R. Schau, Grand Master of Ohio Masons, wanted to honor our Masonic Veterans and undertook an initiative to raise funds to erect memorials at four locations in Ohio: Browning Masonic Community, Waterville; Western Reserve Masonic Community, Medina; National Cemetery, Rittman; and National Cemetery, Dayton.

Throughout the year Brethren, Lodges, and appendant Masonic organizations contributed to this effort. Four granite memorials were created. Standing just under four foot in height, the monuments are each capped with a relief of the Square and Compass, bearing the following inscription:

Free Masons of Ohio

Dedicated to all Masonic Veterans who served with Honor, Loyalty and Integrity, while upholding the principles of Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth.

Grand Lodge of Ohio – 2018 Eric R. Schau, Grand Master

We’d like to thank the Grand Master, Eric R. Schau, Grand Lodge Officers, and the rest of the Ohio Masonic brethren, family, and friends whose support helped make these memorials a reality. We know they will make a huge impact in honoring our Masonic Military Veterans across the state.
