Masters Message Spring of 2023


It was an honor to be elected as your Master last November. I was last Master of the Crown Jewel of The Western Reserve in 2008. While the ritual hasn’t changed, it was still a challenge to knock the rust off. WB  John Vinson once told me a Master must be a good ritualist, and a good administrator. With the assistance of many fine brethren, I’m striving to attain that goal!!

Hudson Lodge is a very active lodge. We held our Holiday Party Sat Jan 21st at the lodge. In spite of the less than ideal weather we had a very nice turnout. We were especially happy to have two of our three new members in attendance with their spouses, and young children. A great meal was provided along with an excellent Christmas Message given by our JW and LEO Jereme Morgan. It was a great evening enjoyed by all.

Hudson Lodge also assisted with the MAPS food basket assembly on Sat December 17th. The event was spearheaded by WB Dutch Chauncy from New Franklin Lodge #803, and was a great success. Over 90 baskets were assembled and provided to families in need. Many thanks to all the brethren, friends, and family who assisted with this worthy cause. 

On Sunday Dec 4th Hudson Lodge participated in the annual Hudson Holiday Walk held near the green. We provided hot dogs, hot coco, and homemade cookies for the hungry shoppers. Foot traffic was much decreased this year because of several events which had relocated to different areas. But, we still managed to show a profit of $500.00 in donations to assist with our numerous Masonic charaties. A huge shout out to my wife Allyson and son John who spearheaded the setting up of the coco bar, and along with other brethren staffed the table for the entire duration of the event. 

There are several upcoming events Hudson Lodge will be participating in, one of which is the Memorial Day Parade. There will be several brothers driving their classic cars in the parade, and like the Holiday Walk, we will once again be providing a food table to assist our charities. 

I was honored to meet Most Worshipful Brother Steven M. Grindle, Grand Master of Ohio at Western Phoenix’s Inspection recently. He took the time to engage in a very nice discussion, and even allowed a picture!! I would encourage a visit to the Grand Lodge of Ohio’s website, www.freemason.com to read our Grand Master’s message and learn more about our great fraternity. 

In closing, on Sat April 22nd the Grand Lodge of Ohio is encouraging a state wide open house. Hudson Lodge will be open to the public from 2PM to 4PM for a tour of the lodge, and a short film provided by the Grand Lodge. Several members of the lodge will be present to answer questions and provide light refreshments. Hope to see you there!!!

Sincerely and Fraternally,
William. B. DeBlaey
Master of Hudson 510

Master’s Message – December 2019


I would like to congratulate our officers for the 2019-2020 term and thank you for electing me Worshipful Master of the Crown Jewel of the Western Reserve. The officers have largely remained the same, with W. Bro. Jacob Jackson assuming the duties of Senior Deacon. We have performed well in the past and are looking forward to many successes this year.

I hope that you had a pleasant Thanksgiving. We all have blessings, large and small, for which to be thankful. Let us not forget the freedoms we enjoy and also often take for granted. It is never too late to thank a veteran, active service member or first responder for their service to our country or community.

As our new Masonic Year begins, there are some traditional activities that fall in December that require our attention. The first is our participation in the Hudson Holiday Walk on December 8th. We serve hot chocolate and hot dogs among other treats for a donation to the celebrants downtown. It’s a great way to meet the community and to raise funds for the Lodge. Help is needed from noon to five o’clock. If you can help keep the hot chocolate flowing, contact W. Bro. Jackson to sign up for a shift. Honestly, there is more socializing than work, but the more hands we have, the easier the job.

This year, our Christmas Party will be held on December 16th beginning at 6:30 at the Temple. All are welcome and we have invited the Brethren of Meridian Sun Lodge and Rockton Lodge to participate. Of course, the Lodge will provide the meat and we ask that everyone bring a dish to share, we are anticipating about 40 adults, so adjust your recipes accordingly. W. Bro. DeBlaey is heading up the effort and we will be sending more information soon.

At the Stated Meeting on December 2nd, we will have a free will collection for the Masonic Assistance Program. While our Lodge supports a local family at Christmas, we have always been generous to the M.A.P. as well. I know this year will be no different. It has become a tradition for our membership to lead the way in assembling the gift baskets for the M.A.P. distribution each year.

This year, the assembly and distribution of baskets will occur on the same day. We will gather for breakfast at the Waterloo restaurant at 8:00 am on Saturday, December 21st. Then we will move to Craftsman Park to assemble the baskets at 9:00. This has become such an event that we have even had children and wives helping the efforts. Again, many hands make light work. I know my Christmas wouldn’t be complete without delivering a basket to someone in need of a break. If you haven’t helped before, come out this year. I’ll warn you though, it’s a hard habit to break!

Finally, there are going to be some significant changes this year. As I mentioned, we will be seeing a lot of our neighboring Lodges as we partner not only for degree work and fundraisers, but also social events. The other Worshipful Masters are on board with the plan and we think that we can make more happen together. The Grand Lodge is making a push to improve communication, participation and education through the use of the Grandview system. We will be discussing this at our meetings throughout the year. They would like everyone to update their profile by logging onto freemason.com and clicking the members tab to get started. You’ll need your membership number from your dues card to register. We will have detailed instructions at the meetings if you are a Luddite, like me. We are also going to learn more about the Ohio Masonic Home Resource Center. For many years, we have been giving to the fraternity, now we need to find out what we can get back from it. As our Brethren age, this is becoming more important than ever. As you can see, this will be a busy year and there will be many reasons to attend Lodge if you haven’t in some time. We will have something of value to every Brother. I hope to see you in Lodge.

Fraternally and Sincerely:
Richard J. Amlung, PM

Masters Message – May/June 2019

May – June 2019


Another busy month has gone by and we have again accomplished much. We now have three additional Master Masons to congratulate. Bro. Chris Yozwiak attended the one-day class at the beginning of April, Bro. John J. Tomasulo attended another one-day class and Bro. Shawn Brown has returned his work in a fine manner after being our inspection candidate. Again, please join me in congratulating these brethren. We have also added a new Entered Apprentice to our lodge with Bro. Jason Williams receiving the EA on April 30th. Please join me in welcoming him into the fraternity.

Unfortunately, with the new blood coming in, we also saw the loss of several long-time members this spring. I would like to take a moment and recognize those we have recently lost. Bro’s Theodoric Smith, Lewis Walker, and Frank Gladden have all found comfort with the Supreme Architect of the Universe. Remember to celebrate the lives and accomplishments of these outstanding men and masons, whom we were fortunate enough to call brother.

If you happen to drive by the lodge, you may see many brethren hard at work as we have several indoor and outdoor projects and repairs coming up. Please stop by and say hello or lend a hand if you have the time. Even if you haven’t been in some time, or don’t recognize the brother there, stop and introduce yourself. There are several brethren we need to thank for their many efforts over the last several months. One of our stewards, Bro Bob Hoffstetter has been spending quite a bit of time on furnace repairs. W. Bro. Bill DeBlaey can often be seen handling the bulk of the yard clean-up. W. Bro. Jon Trimble has done some painting repair and updated the lighting inside the lodge. And finally, W. Bro. Ray Kilroy and W. Bro. Jeff Winters continue to spend a lot of time behind the scenes making sure our bills are paid, records are in order, and newsletters and other communications make it out in a timely fashion. Thank you all for your efforts towards the success and maintenance of our lodge.

At the end of May, we will have a fund-raise/community facing opportunity at the Memorial Day Parade. If you are in town, please come out and support your lodge, if only for a short time. Let’s try to break the trend of a few men doing most of the heavy lifting in terms of our interactions with the community. I hope to see many of you around that weekend. There will be more information coming as we finalize our plans for this important community event. And please, amongst all the BBQ, cookouts, and family gatherings, don’t lose sight of the purpose of the day. Let us remember the brave men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice in the defense of this great nation. And thank you to all veterans who have served beside them.

Fraternally and Sincerely:
Jacob A. Jackson, PM
Worshipful Master
Hudson Lodge # 510
