A Lodge.

What makes up a Lodge and how does it survive?

A Lodge is made up of men and women, like minded, and passionate about the mission.

Cooperation and Teamwork between the Men and the Women is essential. Without it you might as well padlock the doors.

In the past year the Lodge and the Women's Chapter have been working together as partners to better the furthering of our Lodge. We have reaped many benefits by working together.

We look forward to many more events and commitments together. Because together we will survive as an Organization.
