Website Updated for 2014-2015 Lodge Year

The officers of Johnson City Unity Lodge No. 970 are looking forward to another great year in Masonry. The website has been updated to reflect the schedule of programs, officers, committees, and Master's message for the upcoming year. As it was such a success last year, we intend to continue the tradition of holding a light dinner at 6:30pm prior to all meetings, except for degree nights.

We hope to see many folks out for meetings. For those who are unable to join us, we hope all is well and would love to hear from you. Feel free to email an update to us at info@jcu970.org that we can share at our next meeting.
