Fundraising: Braden Style

It’s said you can determine the personality of a group by the way they raise money…

Ok, no one says that, but it’s probably true, and we dig pizza, beer, and bowling. So to raise money for our scholarship fund, which actually gives out honest-to-goodness money to people, we’re having a family-friendly bowling outting. $25 for adults, kids are free. It gets you a lane, shoes, and pizza for two hours. Not too bad.

Who’s the Master? Sho’nuff. We’ve got six more.

In what is widely accepted throughout Braden as perhaps our best degree ever, and even gaining critical acclaim from a visiting brother from the Great White North, Braden 168 has raised six new Master Masons in our Spring 2014 degree class.

What made this degree such a thing to behold is not just the excellent work the brothers put into it, but that the entire lodge breathed family.

Huzzah! Twenty Masons for the King!

Jim and Laszlo...Making Good Men Drunker.

Braden Lodge has made a recent tradition of throwing events at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival. Last year we had a pretty damned awesome table lodge at the Feast of Fantasy, put on by FoF hosts and Braden Brothers, Laszlo and Jim. The year before we met there as well.

This year we’re doing something a little different. We had hoped to open and close a tyled meeting at Bad Manor, but apparently Masons can’t meet on Sunday or something, so instead we’re having an open-to-all informal Masonic get-together and educational meeting. Sort of an open house at someone elses house. So if you want to learn about the fraternity, look us up!

Here is all the info about Masonic Fellowship Day Sun Sep 25th at The Minnesota Renaissance Festival!

Ticket Info: Come to the Festival Box Office-GROUP WINDOW. It’s on the right hand side of the Booth as you walk up. Tell them you are with the Masonic Lodge. Families are welcome.

Children under 4 are free. Children 5-12 $8.50. $15.50 for Adults, discounted from $21.

At 7PM All Brothers or potential Brothers meet at Bad Manor for a Buffet $10 per Brother and an Evening of Fellowship with Masons from Local Lodges as well as Brothers whose Lodges are located around the country.

THERE WILL BE NO FORMAL MEETING NOR WILL WE OPEN THE LODGE!

This is just a chance for some camaraderie in an intriguing place…and time 😉

ALL ARE WELCOME!! Brothers and their Families all day at The Festival and Brothers and potential Brothers at Bad Manor at 7PM. PASS IT ON!!

Hope to see you and other members of any Lodge on Sunday Sept 25th!
