Linden Lodge # 637 holds Stated Meetings on the first Thursday of each month at the Northwest Masonic Temple, 2436 W Dublin-Granville Rd, Columbus, Ohio 43235. Our Lodge is Dark during the months of July and August so we have no meetings during those months.

We normally have a meal prior to our Stated Meetings at 6:37pm.  These meals are open to our friends and potential Brethren as well as our Brothers from other Lodges.  Please remember to invite individuals for a meal and great fellowship.

Grand Lodge of Ohio
Grand View Systems Member Manager


The Grand Lodge of Ohio has started using a new membership information system called Grand View. This will be used by our Secretary to manage all our members.
We urge you to go online, check your profile and make any updates for your personal information and preferences.
You can access the system at https://oh.grandview.systems/users/sign_in. Once there, you will need to click on the “Sign up” link just under the box where you would put your email and password so you can create your account. When you do this you will need your email address, the number on your membership card (do not include the letter at the beginning of the number or any preceding zeros) and you will need to create a password. Once online you can look at your information an make sure everything is correct. If you should ever move or change your contact information, you can update your information so you will not get lost by the lodge.

Have You Paid Your Dues?

While most of our members pay their dues on time every year there are a few who do not. It is important that your dues are paid every year to maintain your status as a Mason. If you haven't pay your dues and the Lodge carries you on the roster waiting for you to pay, we still have to send money to the Grand Lodge to cover you as a Mason. Making the other members cover your membership is not fair to your Brothers in the Lodge. You should have received a dues notice invoice, if you can't find yours contact RWB Ron Leonard and he will tell you what you need to pay and how to pay it. Please help your Lodge and Brothers by  paying on time.


Endowed Membership

How would you like to never have to pay your Lodge dues again? Sign up for an Endowed membership and that can happen. When you have an Endowed Membership the Lodge will receive a yearly payment from the Grand Lodge to cover your membership. The current cost is just $800.00 which can be paid up front or over a five year period at $160.00 per year (plus your yearly dues each year until fully paid). After you have made your total endowment you will just need to make one final dues payment to cover you for the rest of your life. Since you will have an endowment, the Lodge will receive payments for you forever, even beyond your passing away. Talk to your Lodge Secretary about it soon and get in before they have a chance to increase the cost for this great program. Do it now and leave a legacy for Linden Lodge!
