Throughout the history of Butler County the lodge has had a profound effect on growth and leadership of the area.
Information on Recent Damage to Temple Building
Unfotuantely an individual saw fit to extensively damage the temple building with spray paint. The damage will be handled by our insurance company. A few things to remember:
1. We are Masons and, while this is a despicable act, we must remember our station in life and remember acting out in words against this individual is not how we handle issues. The laws of our land which we uphold will take care of the issue.
2. While it may be well intentioned, please do not attempt to clean ANY of the spray paint off the building. This will damage the stone AND will negatively impact the insurance company process.
3. Please refrain from speaking to ANY media about this topic. At this time the only person authroized to speak to the media is Tom Durr, our house chairman.
4. Finally, keep this individual in your thoughts and prayers. After looking at his history and some knowledge of how he acts in public leads us to believe he is not a stable individual.
