2017 Begins our
125th Anniversary Year

       October 12th, 1892


     We are looking forward to having a large celebration of our 125th anniversary of the chartering of Little Prince Lodge 79 Knights of Pythias.  The Knights of Pythias was the first organization granted a charter by congress under President Lincoln.  The organization was still in it's infancy when our forefathers chartered the Little Prince Lodge.  
     Chancellor Commander John Gilbert will soon be appointing positions for the planning committee.  It is our hope that several events leading up to the main event will be planned.  

     Members that are unable to attend meetings, along with members of the general public can be kept informed of planned events by this eNewsletter and by checking out the lodge web page.

     If you have any suggestions for the celebration of this event please contact Chancellor Commander John Gilbert or Secretary Jim Kudlak.  

Please wish these brother Knights a happy birthday.  These are the birthdays for the 1st quarter of the year.
