Grand Lodge Officer Retreat July 2015 at Lied Lodge in Nebraska City

The 2015 Grand Lodge Officers enjoyed a weekend of work and fun at the Lied Lodge in Nebraska City July 24, 25, and 26, 2015. It was a fun weekend away from the normal hustle and bustle of life as a grand lodge officer to enjoy time with each other relaxing and getting better acquainted with family members.  We wouldn’t be grand lodge officers without a couple of meetings, so we did that and prepared for the activities coming this fall.

The theme for the weekend was ‘Come Gnome and Relax’.  There was a gnome hunt with prizes and adventure.  Plenty of time to simply enjoy the weekend.
