From Olive Brand Mount Prospect Lodge No. 16 via the Grand Secretary:
When is the last time your Lodge hosted a program for your Special Ladies? For the 3rd time, Olive Branch Mount Prospect No. 16 has scheduled a cruise for all our Ladies. For two years, we have had over 120 people attend this event, and hope to increase that number. This has truly become a special event that our Ladies, and Brothers, look forward to. Even if your lodge does not have Special Ladies attending, you are welcome to join us with your wives and family to support Special Ladies from across that state.
Who can go: This event is open to all Special Ladies, their friends and family, and the Brethren and their families in support of the Special Ladies.
Cost: $39 per person, including taxes. This is a discounted rate obtained for the program. The price includes admission onto the boat, and buffet style brunch. In the spirit of this program, all tickets for our Special Ladies should be paid for by the lodge. Friends and family, and Brethren can purchase their tickets at the discounted rate. Please see the form linked at the bottom of the page.
