Variety-Cheque-PresentationEvery year we return a significant amount of money and time into our community. Members are encouraged to bring to our meetings, ideas for projects with which we may become involved. As well as helping the community in general, we are also here to help our members when in need. When you have an idea for benevolence just present it to the Benevolence Committee for review.

The Lodge members are encouraged to participate directly in the assistance of any charity in need, by holding fundraisers, by providing social support, and making other efforts that are consistent with the principles of the Order.

Our major, signature projects at present are:

  • Eastside Culture Crawl
