    get out the info? Keep members informed and interested?

    We've got a monthly bulletin that we email out to a list of (currently)99 recipients, and we have a Facebook page, and a webpage that's really just an announcement of our address and contact info.

    I run the bulletin and the FB page, and I'm looking for new ways to keep it lively and change it up a bit. On FB, I post the occasional Masonic trivia tidbit, throw out an occasional quote, announce upcoming degree work, etc. I try to put something new up every few days on the FB page. The email is more just for announcing work dates and the monthly bulletin which is basically a recap of the stated meeting.

    How does your lodge do it? A few new ideas couldn't hurt, that's for sure.

    Website & emails.... holy crap do some folks go overboard on the email traffic though. Ended up making a little folder so I don't have to look at it all the time.

    Our lodge secretary has an email list. Of course telephone is used quite a bit. Our website is mostly after the fact, heck if you look at it you would think we only do York Rite:supergrin:.
