By Perry Klahr—Secretary
At the October Annual Communication, the Grand Lodge will vote on the Grand Lodge budget, which will set the per capita. This in turn will cause our dues to increase. After the per capita is approved, the Grand Lodge will send out dues’ notices.
Please note that whether you get a notice or not, the dues are due before January 1st, 2022. This year the Grand Lodge will only accept/process credit card payments via imember. Checks can be sent directly to me at the address listed below.
The amount that will be due is $118. As in the past, if you cannot pay at this time or need more time or assistance with the dues, please let me know.
HOW TO PAY YOUR 2022 DUES BY MAIL
Send your dues to the secretary directly at 3278 Clifford Cir Pleasanton, CA 94588. Your dues will be deposited into our account with no cost to the lodge.
