Brothers Info & Dues
The annual dues for Myrtle Lodge are requested to be paid prior to the December stated meeting for the following year.
Your annual dues are extremely important to your lodge as it is what pays the bills and allows us to buy food and hold events. However, we also rely on extra donations that allow us to do more for the brotherhood overall and at your lodge.
On top of paying your dues please consider making an extra donation to the Sustaining Membership Program below.
This is not a tax deductible donation
Sustaining Membership Program
Myrtle Lodge #108 hereby adopts a Sustaining Member Program to allow any member of the Lodge to voluntarily contribute $100 per year for the benefit of the operating fund of the lodge.

Sustaining Members shall receive a diamond shaped Masonic lapel pin within 90 days of the receipt of the first $100 contribution. Individuals are entitled to wear the lapel pin as long as they are a Sustaining Member of Myrtle Lodge #108.
A suitable plaque shall be mounted in a prominent place in the lodge showing members who are Sustaining Members for the Sustaining Membership year which begins May 1 of each year and ends April 30 of the following year.
