Polk City Square Lighting

Over 70 people walked through the doors of Operative Lodge #308 in Polk City last night for the Square Lighting. Our Lodge was on the event's "punch card" in which folks go from business to business along the square to get their punch card marked. There were about 20 businesses (and organizations!) listed on the card and each had their own ink stamp to mark on the card of visitors who stopped by. At the end of the night, the completed punch cards are deposited in a box and winners are drawn for prizes including a TV, tablet, and a drone.

We had a lot of questions about Freemasonry, our Lodge, and even heard comments like "I've lived here since the 1970's and this is the first time I've ever been in this building."

Mission accomplished.
