Voting on an increase in dues on August 28,2023  on 07/26/2023
Leaksville Lodge #136
 
This letter is to inform the members of Leaksville Lodge #136 that the Lodge will be voting on an increase in dues on August 28,2023. The members of the Finance and Budget committee have met and presented an amendment to the by-laws on July 24,2023, at our regular stated communication. The amendment will set for the required 28 days and we will vote on August 28,2023. Please plan to attend if you would like to be heard.
Our dues are currently $95.00 dollars with $26.00 of that going to the Grand Lodge for per capita. This only leaves us with $69.00 per member to be used for any-and-all yearly expenses.  We also do not assess dues for any 50+ year members.  We last raised our dues in 2014.  Due to increased operating costs and maintenance to the building we cannot maintain our Lodge with the current dues structure. Costs will continue to rise and there is very little income coming in to cover costs.  We do rent our parking lot to the doctor’s office next door which generates a little additional income. We have rented the dining room out in the past, but no one has rented it in some time.  As a point of reference, the other Lodges in our county currently pay dues of $125.00 (Dan River #129) and $143.00 (Jefferson Penn #384). 
As you can see, we are currently in crisis mode and need to make immediate change. We are also asking for any monetary donation that can be used for maintenance. We recently had to have the HVAC system serviced. The cost for servicing alone was over $500.00. In order to ensure our continued status as a 501(c)(10) non-profit fraternal organization we cannot do any fundraisers specifically for the Lodge. We, as members of Leaksville Lodge #136, can personally contribute to our lodge as much as we want and are able.  If you can find in your heart to donate anything to your Lodge it would be greatly appreciated. We have the newest Lodge building in the County and want to take pride in keeping it nice for many generations to come. Please come out to support your Lodge and get involved. Your Lodge needs you now more than ever!
I am currently a member of all 3 Lodges in Rockingham County. Masonry is struggling all over the State. I would like to see all 3 Lodges around for years to come! But we cannot do it alone!
I am sincerely asking please support your Lodge in this future vote and with any donation you can assist with. If you do plan on giving, please designate your funds to go to maintenance funds.
Thank you.
Sincerely,
 
 
Daryl N. Crowder
Worshipful Master (2023)
