As part of the Grand Lodges’s new Reception, Retention, and Revitalization (R3) initiative, we’ve partnered with the Columbus Chamber of Commerce to support growth in our respective organizations and the community. This program is designed to be a resource for lodges in conjunction with the local Chamber of Commerce. Grand Orator Kevin Scheele organized a meeting with the Columbus Chamber of Commerce Commodores, Grand Senior Warden Ron Stites, and representatives of Lebanon Lodge No. 323 at the Masonic Center in Columbus on July 24th. Fifteen Columbus Chamber Commodores were in attendance to hear about what we do and who we are as Masons in Nebraska.
