Support our Vets and Soldiers


 Veterans Day is fast approaching and we each owe a great debt of gratitude to our fighting men and women.  It is hard to believe as we carry on our daily lives that our country is battling wars around the world.  We see it on the news and maybe we have been so overwhelmed by the overload of information and opinions that we blur out those that are sacrificing for our freedom 24/7.  We have and have had many veterans in our order and in our lodge.  For those that are gone we can only offer a postumus thanks.  For those that are still present you still have the opportunity to say thank you for your gift of freedom in person.  Please take the time to find out who these brothers and sisters are and say thank you.  Please click on this link if you are in need of a reminder of who our vets past and present are.
