Trestleboard Article July/August 2002

Brethren,

No Trestle Board article is available for July/August 2002.

A brief message concerning perpetual life membership.

PERPETUAL LIFE MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM

NOTE

According to the Ahiman Rezon Article 104, any member who has Paid dues for 40 years is exempt from Grand Lodge per-capita, if the Lodge exempts them. There is also a proposal to change Life Membership from 40 to 50 years. This comes up every year and could pass at any year.

Perpetual Life Membership schedule is as follows:

Age

12-29

30-39

40-49

50-59

60-64

65+

Factor

25

23

20

18

15

10

50.00

1250.00

1150.00

1000.00

900.00

750.00

500.00

Fee for Life membership is determined by multiplying dues by The factor for the age of the applicant. The amount to become a Perpetual Life member will never be any lower than at the present time. Think about it and check your savings.

With a life membership, your lodge will receive the interest earned on the fee as long as per-capita is due Grand Lodge, after that time or at your death, the lodge would continue to receive 75% of the interest from then on. This would assist the lodge with its expenses.

Per our By-law changes, our dues as of 1999 are now $50.00. Now With the passing of the Per-capita increase at our Grand Lodge Annual Communication in April 2000, according to our by-laws they will increase at a rate of 2Ĺ% per year to accumulate for 4 years then rounded to the nearest ľ of a dollar. The first increase collected by the Grand Lodge in the year 2005. This means our lodge dues for year 2004 would be $50.50. in the next cycle it would increase to $51.25. If you will take a close look at this, you will see the savings on your part, by becoming Perpetual Life member within the next few years. It can be paid over a three-year period along with your dues until paid in full.

If you have any questions, please give me a call, at 843-379-9462, (new number) if you donít get me just leave your name and number, and I will get back with you.

There is a proposal to come before the Craft this year at Grand Lodge to raise the per-capita by $5.00, and it very well may pass. If you need further information drop me a note, or an E-Mail. Rvppgm@hargray.com

 

Sincerely and fraternally,

Robert V. Pinkston, PGM

Secretary 1976-2001

 



SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS!

Our Lodge is sponsoring a blood drive on 1 October, 2002 from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm at the Lodge. Sign-ups for appointments are available, and walk-in's are both encouraged and welcome.

We are doing it through the Florida-Georgia Blood Alliance. The great part about this organization is that the donated blood stays in the Beaufort area, so there is a direct, positive impact on our local community. Additionally, when donors that represent a minimum of 25% of the Lodge's membership donate blood within a 12 month period, every member of the Lodge (Regardless of weather he donated blood), and his tax-dependant family members, will be eligible to receive a 20% reimbursement on the cost of processing blood for one year regardless of their insurance benefits. If we can get a minimum of a 40% representation of the Lodge's membership to donate during a 12 month period, this same benefit is extended to the non-tax dependant family members.
