ANOTHER THREE RANK DAY AND NEW LODGE IS COMING! It is hard to believe that our great Order is in its 155th year! A lot of history has been written in our 155 years. Will you be a part of the continuing history or the reason the Order stops? I know you get tired of hearing about membership, but.....the fact is we MUST get new members for our lodges to survive. Then, the lodges MUST get off their butts and DO SOMETHING to interest the membership to want to retain them as members! Let us ALL work toward signing up one or more candidates! We still have Masonic Brothers that are wanting to learn about Pythianism! Sunday, April 7th (this date is currently tentative) we will be instituting a NEW LODGE at the Indiana Masonic Home as at least 9 or more Master Masons join the Pythian Order! Lodge will open at 11am with the Rank of Page followed by lunch. The Rank of Esquire & Knight, installation of officers and institution of the lodge will follow lunch. Let all Pythians who are not Masons also help the Masonic Fraternity by petitioning the Masonic Fraternity for membership. You will be glad you did! We still have t-shirts, hats, money clips and embroidered jackets to give away on the local level plus life time memberships, get away weekends and colt tickets to name a few prizes for the state membership contest! If you need applications, they are on this website or contact the Grand Secretary at 765-686-1735 or indianaglkop@att.net and he will send you one right away. To fail is no disgrace, but not to try is shameful! Sign up a new Knight today!
