I can understand that reasoning and one DDGM who is a member of our Lodge strongly opposes the merger based on that very issue.However the other Lodge meets in our building since theirs burned down a few years ago and my Lodge met in their building prior to buying our own.Everyone knows each other between the both of us so this will probably work out better than most mergers.Let's pray it does.tom.
