Annual Dues in Irving Lodge are $75.00 and are due each year by December 31 to pay for the next years dues. To make it simple, we pay the dues for 2011 by December 31, 2010. Our dues are set at the amount which the lodge has voted them to be. There might come a time, before long, when we will be required to raise the amount of our dues. Nobody likes that idea, but reason and requirements must prevail. As we start our third year of no income from our 219 Endowed Memberships, we are denied more than half of our expected income. We are asking the Endowed Members to consider paying the amount of their regular dues until the economy rewards our endowments.
