I was with a group of 6 friends and fellow Elks. We visited your lodge on September 14th and had a wonderful time. We were shown around your beautiful lodge by ER Kristin and made to feel most welcome. Sorry we couldn't stay for the pasta dinner that night! You have a beautiful lodge and terrific members and you should be most proud of that. Hope to come back and see you sometime! From the Franklin Indiana gang, all the best to you! Michelle Stringer, Mike Sibbing, John Kempski, Eileen Taillon, Kenny Austin and Birgit Austin. Visit us!

It looks like I'm too late to be the first to sign 188's guest book but second is OK.

The website is very impressive and informative. I know that it will continue to improve as you go along.

Thanks for all the time and effort that went into it.
