As of




From the Desk of the Administrator



As most of you may have heard, beginning August 1st,  cross sponsoring is now available.    What this means to you:


A man may now sponsor a woman for membership in the WOTM Chapter, and conversely a woman may now sponsor a man in the Lodge.   The procedure is no different;  if the application is for a woman the application goes to the Chapter and if it is for a man it goes to the Lodge.  There are no changes in fees or the approval process.


This does bring about a whole new scenario.  Since anyone can sponsor a man or a woman, all guests now become prospective members.   Therefore they are only allowed two visits; after that, they must join or they no longer can come in as a guest.  The only exceptions are minor children of members, or the spouse of a member.  They can always come in as a guest.  They must be signed in.


As you can imagine, the logistics of implementing these changes are going to be a work in progress.  Please be patient as we try to make this transition as seamless as possible.

Your LOOM has some  Good News for Dues.  In an effort to recruit more members, Glendale Lodge  will waive the $20 application fee for new members until the end of April 2015.  Current members can renew their dues at the reduced rate of $75 for two years until the end of April 2015.   This is true even if your current dues expire after April 2015.   The only stipulation is that the member must come into the lodge to pay his dues  directly to the Administrator, or in his absence, the bartender on duty (who can accept the renewal payment).   New members can also take advantage of  this special  two year rate.  


It’s that time of the year again.  Elections are coming around for the Lodge and the Chapter.  If you have any interest in running for an office this year, please contact the Senior Regent-Carol Coppersmith or Recorder-Zana Bellinger (WOTM)  or the Governor-George Coy  or the Administrator-Bob Turek (LOOM).


It’s not too early to start making your reservations for the International  Convention in Nashville  this year.  It should prove to be an exciting and fun experience.  Don’t miss out!

REMINDER:   VOLUNTEERS ALWAYS NEEDED  to help at the lodge.  If you can spare a few hours, your help would be appreciated.  Contact Bob Turek or Dave Bush.
