For all visitors to this website
Had to post this when i saw it
New look for the Lodge Room
Calvin Coolidge once said:
“It has not been my fortune to know very much of Freemasonry, but I have had the great fortune to know many Freemasons and have been able in that way, judge the Tree by its Fruit. I know of your high ideals. I have seen that you hold your meetings in the presence of the open Bible, and I know that men who observe that formality have high sentiments of citizenship, of worth, and character. That is the strength of our Commonwealth and our Nation.”
Virtues we live by
We as Masons live by Virtues that we incorporate into our everyday lives. The four Cardinal Virtues which are Temperance, Fortitude, Prudence and Justice and represent the foundation of natural morality. At the end of the day, living by the Cardinal Virtues will bring each of us honor, and a reputation that is untarnished. Alternatively, failing to heed the teachings of these virtues can lead to a life of sadness, one where we are left trying to rebuild that which we once had. For our Lodges, as long as we govern ourselves by using the Cardinal Virtues as a guide, then we will continue to stand the test of time. We will, through our actions, ensure that the detractors of Freemasonry are overshadowed by the truth of Freemasonry. These Four Cardinal Virtues of Freemasonry provide a framework for daily living and serve as a guide for our relationship with God and our fellow man. As new Masons we must begin to develop and strengthen these virtues, which will help us grow and develop into better men. As experienced Masons, we should constantly remind ourselves of these virtues and their importance in our lives.

Summit Lodge’s Mission Statement
Summit Lodge’s Mission
Our Mission is to provide an opportunity for men to come together and improve themselves, their family, and their community by investing in Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth.
Come out and join the guys for dinner and fellowship
You don’t have to be a Mason to join us for dinner
If there are 5 Thursdays in a month, the 5th Thursday is set aside for the guys to get together, have dinner and relax and enjoy each others company. Also, every couple of months, we get together and take our better half out for dinner. You don’t have to be a Mason to join us. If you have questions about the Oldest Fraternity in the world please feel free to join us. There will be 5 Thursday’s in March, so this will be our next Guys Night Out. On March 30 we will be getting together at Jake’s in Mantua. A small town diner with a room big enough to hold us. They also have a “clear liquids” area. Thursday nights’ are $5 Burger Night. Hope to see you there. However, our Lodge will also be holding a Scottish Rite Night the same night, so if you are not a member of Scottish Rite and you are interested in receiving additional Light in Masonry this would be a good time to join. SRN begins at 7:00 at the Summit Temple. You DO have to be a MM to join Scottish Rite.
Ladies Night Out
Brothers all: March 18th we will be taking our Better half out for dinner for Ladies Night Out. Our SW has procurred an area at the Oak and Embers Restaurant on Rt. 91 in Twinsburg. The restaurant is on the west side of Rt. 91 and just before you drop down over the hill to go into Hudson. Please contact the WM or SW if you are planning to attend. This is always a great time and again, you do not have to be a Mason to join us.
Endowment Membership Raffle
I have been chastised for not putting this on the website, so here it is. Summit Lodge is having an Endowment Raffle which is open to ANYONE. You can contact anyone in Lodge and we will get you tickets. Tickets are 1 for $10 or 3 for $20. Drawing will be held on June 15. If you are not a Mason you may take the cash option of $500. If you are a Mason and you are already an Endowment member, this is transferable (if you win).
