Braden Lodge doesn’t suffer from this…we can’t agree on anything. But as a result, we’ve learned the virtues of respect, kindness, tolerance, and civility. It has also earned us a reputation as a very warm, welcoming lodge.

We seek each other out for aide and assistance, support and conversation. We challenge each other, support each other, and at times, grieve with one another.

We do it on a handshake.

We do it seriously.

We do it together.
