Join The Washington Society

In 2015, The Colonial Lodge created The Washington Society to recognize brethren who contribute above and beyond their required dues. As a young Lodge, Colonial aims to build an investment fund from which to draw for community service projects, brotherly relief gifts, and other needs of the Lodge as they arise. Brethren who triple their annual dues (a total donation of $500 or higher) will receive recognition in The Washington Society in the form of a mention in every Trestleboard published by the Lodge and a Washington Society Challenge Coin as a thank you. For more information on the Washington Society, please contact the Secretary (email here). For those who are interested it may be of note that the Lodge is happy to arrange payment plans for joining The Washington Society.
