Last night (04-14-2014) Ware Lodge voted to sale our building. The vote went very well 11 for selling and 2 for not. No we begin the process of finding a place to build our new lodge. We have a prospective buyer already!

If I may ask, why build from the ground up instead of buying an existing building and doing renovation?

The area we are in is pretty rural and the pickings are slim for existing buildings. We are looking at a few. Nothing is set in stone yet.

I envy the old time lodges that rented space over an existing business, that did not have an obligation to a structure with taxes, repairs, insurance, utilities, etc.
I feel that many Masons are more involved in the building than in building their Masonry!
Let's get some of these millstones from our necks!

Put together a box (or boxes) of the objects we need to make a space into a lodge room, similar to the proposed "Lodge in a Box" for military lodges, and not burden ourselves with an edifice that distracts us from Masonry.
