About The Grotto

The Grotto is a Masonic order whose members are all Master Masons. The Grotto has been called the Master Masons' Playground. The Grotto is a place where all Master Masons and their families can relax, enjoy themselves, and find other like minded people; the entire time knowing that good Masonic principles guide each and every member. The Grotto is a place to meet friends for life, play together, and work for the good of the community.


If you are a Master Mason in good standing you can, and should, ask to become a Grotto Prophet.

Helping Special Hockey

Small Cast PicO-Ton-Ta-La Grotto is a proud supported of the Black Swamp Ice Frogs. The Ice Frogs are a special needs hockey team based in Bowling Green, Ohio. They provide an opportunity for individuals with a variety of disabilities and special needs to experience the sport of hockey.


For the previous several seasons, O-Ton-Ta-La has sponsored the cost of several individuals to be a part of the Black Swamp Ice Frogs. We strongly believe that the benefits of programs such as this provide a positive impact on the individuals and communities which they serve.


We recommend that beyond your support for the Humanitarian Foundation, that you also look to support programs such as this within your community.

General Update

The website appears to be back up. That is a big plus.


We are planning a short form inititation for the October meeting. If you have any petitions to join please get them to the secretary so that they may be dealt with in time.

2018 Officers

The officers for 2018 have will be nominated in November and elected in December. Please make an effort to attend the nomination or annual election to ensure that your voice is heard and that you have a say in the happenings of the Grotto.

Camp Masonry Ceremonial

At the start of August we had the pleasure of putting on a shortened ceremonial at Camp Masonry in Toledo, Ohio. A very entertaining time was had by all candidates and cast members. For those who became Prophets that evening we hope you enjoyed it, for those who missed out there are plenty of opportunities to join the Grotto.

The potential of doing the Grotto degree again next year is still there. However, planning is underway to do a full form ceremonial this coming spring. Quick initiations are always able to be done at any stated meeting as well.
