    I wish you the very best with the consolidation. The ones around here don't seem to work so well. We have a small Lodge of about 115 members. We're situated in the heart of our town and are very active in the community. I think that when Lodges merge, they lose their identity. I've seen Lodges merge and become 700+ membership and still can't put together a FC Team. Hope yours is successful!!
     
  8. mmsig229,thanks for your support.Last week's stated meeting had thirty seven in attendance.Approx. the same as the first combined meeting.This is showing me that the merger is working.For how long I don't know,but we'll see.tom.

    Good luck on the merger. About a year and a half ago, the lodge in the small town next to ours merge with mine. All went well, we gained quite a few regular members to an already small lodge (15-20 regularly participating for one reason or another mostly LE work though). It's still quite small but the fellowship is pretty strong. Hopefully I'll be able to get a shift/off days to allow more from me other than the yearly dues.
     
  10. Thank you Brother.tom.
