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.

MASTERS DEGREE8:00 pm Breakfast9:00 pm Degree

AAR: 11-27-21

Our 3rd Degree this morning was really impressive. The breakfast beforehand was extremely delicious. I want to thank WB Jim Cook (the Baconator) and Bro Russell McDaniel for working so hard to prepare the meal .

I want to thank WB Dick Cunningham for sitting in the East for the second section and for giving the Ancient Charge. I want to thank WB Doyle Martin for being one of the Ruffians and Hiram, King of Tyre. I want to thank WB Bill McGloin for seating in the East for the first section, giving the Instructions in the West, and the Yonder Book Lecture. His floor work was perfect. Thanks are in order to WB Jim Cook for being one of the Ruffians and Bro Fernando Melo for being the other Ruffian. I also want to thank WB Jerry Harwitz for being our Tyler today. Everyone did an outstanding job. It means a lot when the floor work is performed so well.

If you were not at the lodge this morning for the 3rd degree, you missed an exceptional performance.

Jim Moore, WM

2020 DEDICATION OF 4th COTTAGE AT CHILDREN'S HOME

LANDSCAPING

is now being provided by

Anita Gaines

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!
