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 required. 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. We then have a brief Stated Meeting after the program. Sample both the food and our program. You might like it!

RECENT FUN AND SPECIAL EVENTS
At our last Masonic Education Program on November 12 we had a presentation titled "Esoteric Meaning of the Installation Program", or the inward knowledge of the Masonic public officer installation program. If you were not there you missed out on a very well researched program. Patrick Duong on the left and Tuoc Pham on the right, and we appreciate that they traveled from Southern California for this event.
Olive Branch Lodge had five members in attendance at Orange Belt Lodge on Thursday October 17 when they were having a third degree and after the program retrieved the Traveling Gavel back to where it all started. We look forward to having another lodge come and get it!

Child Safety Fair 2013 At The Tulare County Fair in September
This program allows the lodge to provide parents a guardians a document with the child's picture and thumbprints for their use in a child safety situation. No cost and the information is not retained by the lodge. Our lodge were able to help parents create over 1,100 Child Safety documents with help of many hours by our volunteers.
