For years there has been a glitch in our Membership Statement that has now generated an unallocated over-payment in the amount of $10,000. Using the numbers the lodge claims — 700 members as an average — that is $14.29 dues credit per member.

The lodge states that a Grand Lodge and a Washington state association officer “suggested” the unallocated funds be brought up on the floor to determine what to do with them. Without full disclosure to all members, they actually voted our monies be contributed between two charities of their choice and nine of those voting had been initiated that evening.
