Welcome to Fulton Lodge F & AM #248

Serving Free & Accepted Masons in and around Fulton County since 1854, our lodge is located in the heart of Delta, OH, and part of the Fabulous 5th District. We meet on the first Tuesday of every month at 7:30 pm. Freemasonry is the oldest, largest, and most widely recognized fraternal organization in the world. Thirteen signers of the Constitution and fourteen Presidents of the United States, including George Washington, were Freemasons. Today, there are more than 2 million Freemasons in North America alone, 75,000 of which are Ohio Freemasons.

Delta Christmas Parade 2022

We had the pleasure to participate in the annual Delta Christams Parade this past Saturday. This was the largest group we ever had involved, and certainly the most effort put into a "float" (Pat Lambert, you were amazing to work with through this and thanks John Seabolt for towing us along). We handed out a ton of candy and stuffed animals (thanks Shawn Griffin for that) and ended the evening with some awesome fellowship (and hot chocolate) at the lodge afterwards. This was an amazing event for the lodge my brothers! (read more for gallery pictures)

Fulton Lodge Holds Guided Tour for Pike Delta York 3rd Grade

We were contacted in early September by one of the teachers at PDY Elementary School about having a guided tour of our Lodge Temple Building. Every year in late September, the 3rd grade class takes a walking tour of Delta to look at the history of the village.  We were told that every year they stop by the cornerstone of the Masonic Temple to point out the date and describe it as one of the oldest buildings in the village, but they have never had a chance to tour it.

The Return of the Jiggs Dinner at Fulton Lodge

We are pleased to announce the return of our annual Jiggs Dinner on Tuesday, March 15 after a two year hiatus.  Dinner will be 6:00pm, dress is casual. After dinner, we are going to screen a copy of TerraMasonic: Around the World in 80 Lodges. There are no Masonic secrets in this film, it is open to everyone, so I do hope you bring your spouse or significant other along.  It is also a great evening to bring an friends who you think might be interested in the craft. As usual, plan on dinner to be around $10/person to cover costs.  RSVPs ARE A MUST and are due in by March 4.

You can see the trailer for the documentary here: http://terramasonica.com/

I hope you find it as exciting and intriguing as I did.
