    Does your Lodge go Dark? If so, what schedule does your Lodge adhere to?

    Most lodges in the east do it out of legacy from when weather would prohibit one from going to lodge, Texas it sometimes happens in the summer because it is too hot to sit on the second floor in a tux with no AC. ;)

    We go dark for June-August. We still have stated meetings but just for regular business. Our winters are long up here so summer times are highly valued :)

    Metropolitan meets every Tuesday except in October when almost all of the lodge is serving at the State Fair with the Shriners.

    Ofcourse we do! If we left the lights on all the time then our bills would be through the roof! :laugh:

    We go Dark July and August, although this year we are more like going "dim" since we do have some events and like two meetings planned at the Masonicare home

    My Lodge meets year round, but we're one of the few in the area.
