    Indeed best to ask a Tax attorney or Tax accountant. Most Lodges I have contact with are set up as non-profits but NOT charities. In any case given the reduced tax deduction allowance for charitable contributions in the US, I doubt it will matter in the end if you are located in the States.

    Hello! New from Ohio

    Welcome to the forum Brother! Funny, we have an organ and no one who knows how to play. Last week after Lodge a couple of us were wondering if it actually works! We turned it on and low and behold if you press a key, sound comes out!

    Jurisdiction bucket list

    Me too! I never think to look ahead and plan our trips for when one meets. Typically get into NOLA a day after one meets or leave the day before!

    Happy St. John's Day Brothers!

    And I will mention in Pennsylvania we only mention ONE St. John, St John the Evangelist on who's Saint's Day our Masonic Years begin and end. Also our Lodges are not dedicated to St John but to God, they are "Held forth in memory" of St John.
