From The President:
Brothers and Guests, welcome to the Official Ohio Widows Sons M.R.A. website.
It is an Honor and pleasure to serve this organization in the capacity of President for a second term, with the guidance and support of Dale Collins (V.P.), Mike “Chewy” Tinlin (Treasurer), Ken “Pappy” Schneider (Secretary), Dwayne Beam (SAA), Ralph Bentley (GOM) Tim Rose (Controller) Doug Fruetel (Comms Boss). With Chapter Presidents and Wisdom from our Past State Presidents, I look forward to an incredible 2019 for the Widows Sons MRA in the great state of Ohio.
Our work in 2018 has brought us 7 new Chapters and a few hundred new members. We were present at all 25 Grand Masters Receptions in 2018, donating a total of $7500. Now in 2019, we will again be celebrating the opportunity for fellowship at all the Grand Master’s Receptions and presenting Donations at each to total $7500. This year’s Charity is the Masonic Model Student Assistant Program. Funding for this program comes from the sale of Grand Chapter Challenge coins, which are available on this website. New 2019 coins will be available in March.
We have held Monthly Conference Calls to increase and improve the communications of Ohio Widows Sons Grand Chapter with all Local Chapter Presidents. We will continue to do so this year.
The 2019 Ohio WS State Rally will be held on July 18th to 20st in the Sandusky, OH area. Please check the links on this site for more information and to pre- register for this exciting event.
As we, the Ohio Widows Sons MRA, move forward into 2019, I thank all of our Officers and members for your past, current, and future assistance.
Fraternally, Dwayne A. Coltz
Ohio Grand Chapter President
