Olive Branch Lodge No. 269 Free & Accepted Masons
Tulare, California - Chartered October 11, 1883
Stated Meetings - First Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m.
Where our members want to Educate, Engage and Excel
Tuesday March 4- 6:30 pm. Stated Meeting Dinner and Program
Our Stated Meeting dinners start at 6:30 p.m. followed by a program. The dinner is open to all family and friends! $10 cost for the meal and reservations are requested. Although only Masons may attend the Stated Meetings we have changed the format so that we present after dinner as much of the lodge business we can for all in attendance before going upstairs.
The Program this month will be interesting as we will have a brief history of our lodge in 1914 and the challenges our Officers and members had even back then, plus representatives from the Tulare Police department Community Services and Neighborhood Patrol.
We then have a brief Stated Meeting after the program. Sample both the food and our program. You might like it! Call or Text Steve at 559-804-2248 or send an email to email@example.com for meal reservations. All Masons, family and friends encouraged to attend.
UPCOMING LODGE ACTIVITIES
Our Lodge with at least five members will visit Hanford Lodge, 233 N. Douty St, Hanford, on Wednesday March 5th at 6:30 pm to drop off the Traveling Gavel and have dinner. All Mason's are invited. Contact Bob Sutton at 559-686-8846 if interested.
Tuesday March 11- Monthly Masonic Education Dinner and Program at 6:30 pm
Meal Cost is $10.00 and Reservations are requested. Education in Freemasonry is meant to be a lifelong process, furthering our understanding of the fraternity and its relevance to today's world. So attend and discover what we will be doing in 2014 with our Masonic Education.
Our program this month will be reviewing how 1897 was the "Golden Age of Fraternalism' for secret socities based on a model established by Freemasons in North America. We will ask the question, what happened to them and how did it affect the Masonic Lodges?
Call or text Steve Presant at 559-804-2248 or firstname.lastname@example.org for reservations. All Masons, family and friends are invited.

Tuesday December 13 - OBL Christmas Monthly Social Event
We met for a theater show “Dickens Christmas Carol”, the comedic version, at the Encore Theater on Friday December 13. It was pretty funny if you like more slapstick humor and the acting was great!
There were five of us there and we enjoyed our time together.
