DUES & DONATIONS
You can now Pay your dues or make a donation to the Lodge right here on our website. There is only a small processing fee for the convenience of dues-payment; and no fee at all for any donations. Thanks!!
A note about the donation selection for the Grand Lodge Per Capita tax - this amount is included in your annual dues. However, if you are an Emeritus or Life member, you deservedly do not pay dues any more. This is just a way that you can help the lodge by volunteering to cover the Grand Lodge fixed costs.

In memory of her Father and our beloved Brother
1976 PWM George Gaines
We can't thank you enough Anita!
Please take notice of the Nelms Lodge grounds! Through an exceedingly gracious gift, Anita Gaines (daughter of the late W. Bro. George Gaines) has funded the landscaping of Nelms Lodge as a way to thank the lodge and fraternity that meant so much to her father for 60+ years of his life. In 2015 Ms. Gaines hired a landscaper to mow, trim, and blow once or twice per month. In itself, this was a tremendous help to our lodge, but Ms. Gaines did not stop there. She also had a retaining wall built between our parking lot and CVS, and new flower beds installed in several areas. We were able to install a gate in 2015 to help protect our property, and jonquil flower beds on either side of the front door (along the front side of the building). Thanks to her generosity, our lodge now looks better than ever. A plaque was installed on the new wall in dedication to W. Bro. Gaines via his daughter, Ms. Anita Gaines. Thank you Ms. Gaines!
