If I do the drop and move process to change parent lodges, I lose my endowment. All I want is to have my most active lodge process paperwork like certs of good standing. Right now my parent lodge I have not attended in almost 20 years has to handle it. Seems retarded to me.
Many small lodges may need a member, who does not come, but pay. And it is the same, if you pay for a masonic project directly or via lodge fees.
2 of the lodges I belong to are getting about 20% attendance. Interesting thing is most of the 20% in each lodge are the same brothers. One lodges Marshall is the others secretary. One one lodges WM is the other lodges JW. I'm an not an officer in either but I am always at both.
