Grand Master Gene Collins and his wife Dixie hosted a evening with members of Grand Lodge. Delicious pizza was served and a good time was had by all.
Throughout our lives we make many new friends and there are some who become part of family, unfortunately also comes a time when we must say goodbye to them because they have departed this life. The death of a friend leaves us with a taste of sorrow, but that feeling is even worse and more difficult to get over for their families.

Activities are at the core of successful lodges. If a member finds it interesting and enjoyable to attend lodge, no one will have to solicit their attendance. They will come because they want to. Guests should be encouraged to come to pubic lodge functions. Programs can be planned that will attract members as well as non-members. Every meeting of your lodge is, and should be, thought of as an activity. This is true whether it is a Regular Meeting, such as an installation, a degree, a visit with another lodge., the Grand Lodge is no different. Below is a review of some of the activities that were recently held at Grand Lodge.
