Calling the Herd!

Our Lodge meets every Thursday night at 7:00 pm. While attendance is not mandatory for our members, participation in these weekly meetings is highly recommended. It is during these weekly meetings that the business of the Lodge is reviewed, discussed and implemented. This is the time that we celebrate our accomplishments, offer our support for those who need it, and mourn the passing of our brothers and sisters. Come find out what our Committees are doing and what you can do to help, what events are happening and what is planned for the future. Cast your ballot for new members and welcome them into the fold on Initiation Night. It is our membership who drive and shape the direction of our Lodge, and every vote counts. This is your chance take sure that your voice is heard and appreciated! A buffet dinner is available for purchase prior to the meeting and the bar is open, so come in early and have some fun and socialize with your compatriots prior to the Lodge Meeting!
