Just wanted to send greetings. I was brought up in Hillsboro, but am now in Richmond Va. My stepfather, Woodrow Stroupe was ER at your lodge, and also my cousin Dan Anthonis was also ER there. My Father, Sam CATANZARO, was Elk of the Year at Santa Maria, Ca Lodge. Number is 15 something. All American lodge for years. My husband, Stuart S Sanderson was ER at Elks#45 in 1999-2000. So I come from a long line of members and you all truly do good work. Do you ever have dinners or anything that outsiders can attend? I noticed there is nothing on calendar for May. Hope to be able to stop by while visiting in hometown. Sincerely Judy Catanzaro Sanderson wife of deceased per

Greetings from Prescott Lodge #330 "Mother Lodge of Arizona". In December of 1895 a group of enterprising businessmen in Prescott, sturdy products of the early west, charted the original petition for a dispensation and later established the Prescott Lodge.

With our mile high elevation (5230 ft), the cities enjoy a four-season climate with both mild winters and summers. Check out our page. We have a very content rich site.
