Pink Lodge

From R∴W∴ Ed Kellner, PDDGM


On February 12th, Brandon Lodge will host the “Pink Lodge”, presented by the Eastern Star and in conjunction with Olin S. Wright Lodge. Seating is limited, and a ticket to the event is required. Tickets are currently available from R:.W:. Kellner.

As Brandon Lodge is the host lodge, we need to make a very positive impact on those attending. Many of the guests have not been to Brandon Lodge before; this is a great opportunity of us. Help is needed, and your support is essential. Please see the Worshipful Master if you are willing to help.

The flyer for the “Pink Lodge” is attached.

Hubert-Iris Allen Scholarship – Spaghetti Dinner

Dear Brethren,
Charity is a hallmark of Masonry. We have had different fund raisers to raise funds for our
charitable donations to our adopted school, Hubert-Iris Allen Scholarship, etc. Unfortunately, all
these fund raisers are made possible by a few brothers working to put these together as well as
some brothers coming to participate. So our charitable contributions are really the result of only
a few brothers.

I am asking each brother to remember that charity is part of our activity. We need to raise
money for the Hubert-Iris Allen scholarship. I am asking each brother to send a donation to the
Lodge for this activity. Please mark it Scholarship Fund.

The Lodge mailing address is: P.O.Box 816, Brandon, FL 33509

We will have a link on our web site to allow donation through Square. You can indicate the
amount you wish to donate. The link is:\

On November 13th, we will have a spaghetti dinner at the Lodge, serving from 11:30-1:30.
Every brother that donates $10 or more, please come and have fun and fellowship. This is a
thank you for supporting the scholarship fund. If you want an additional dinner, tickets will be
available at the door.

If you don’t send a donation, we will have tickets available for the dinner. Cost will be $12 at
the door.
