You will be invited to the Lodge to get to know us and what we do. You will also be given the date to show up for your Initiation.
Initiation is a special meeting night where you go through a very nice ceremony. After the ceremony you are a member and can take part in the remainder of the meeting and future social functions or help with our charitable events.
