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 may however have a few special events during the summer so check our news page to see what we are doing. All of our Stated Meetings are held at 7:30PM. 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.

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!
