Sunrise Lodge Golf Shirt Drive

I am pleased to announce we are making available to Sunrise members the opportunity to update your wardrobe for the summer with a new Sunrise Lodge logo’d golf shirt.

The new shirt is made of moisture wicking fabric with a Jacquard texture, machine washable, and will have emblazoned on the left breast area (or what would be the front pocket area, for there is no pocket) the logo of our Lodge as pictured below.

Also, on the left sleeve will be the motto:

“Not Just A Man. A Mason.”

This is the style and color…

We will be offering these shirts to members in good standing well below the cost. We are asking only for a $20 donation (per shirt) to help defer some of the expense.

To order simply use the “Contact Form” located on this site and fill in the particulars such as…

  • How many you would like.
  • What sizes.

Sizes range from Small through XXXL

(You may also order when attending Lodge if that better suits.)

Once we have a tally on how many we will be placing the order. If there is any issue with sizing availability during the process we’ll notify those that may need to adjust if they wish.

Once the shirts are made we will make them available for pick up at the Lodge where payment can be made then either by check, cash or through the Paypal portal on the website.

There is no shipping available – all shirts will need to be picked up at the Lodge.

The cut off date for ordering is May 4th (our first stated in May).

So, please, place your order using the “Contact Form” or at the Lodge as soon as possible so we can get a tally and get it off to the maker.

Sunrise Lodge Event: Zoo Day

Sunrise Lodge is holding a special event available for its members at the Columbus Zoo on Saturday, May 22nd.

It will be held at the “Waters Edge Pavilion” and catered via their “Picnic Menu” which will consist of entrees of either Hot dogs or BBQ pulled pork, each with sides of coleslaw and potato chips.

The pavilion holds up to 80 guests and is first come first served status. So RSVP is required.

For those wishing to attend here are the particulars:

1.) We would like to have all RSVP’s in by May 4th (our first stated in May). This will give us time to give the event coordinator at the Zoo a final headcount to prepare the lunch.

To RSVP simply use the contact form on this site and fill in the particulars such as: How may adults and children (children = aged between age 3 to 9). Hot Dogs, BBQ, or how many of each? (Example: 2 BBQ plates, 2 Hot dog plates for serving 2 adults and 2 children or vice versa, or other combo thereof.)

2.) The event is for Sunrise members, our family members (sons/daughters/grandchildren) and any potential approved candidates. We have also invited the Job’s Daughters who are expressing interest, TBD.

3.) All would meetup at the Zoo directly (e.g., via your own means of transportation).

Directions can be found on their (Columbus Zoo) website or by simply clicking (HERE).

This event (e.g., admission and picnic lunch) is provided to all RSVP’d associates free of charge. However, we do accept any and all donations either via the Paypal donation portal or by check to help fund future events of this kind, and are greatly appreciated.
