Milwaukie #109 has one of the most active and diverse memberships you will likely find.
Petitioning for membership
The process of joining the lodge starts with what is known as “Petitioning” the lodge for membership – essentially, asking to join. The Petition must be filled out, signed, and mailed to the lodge or given to your sponsor. Initiation Fees must accompany the Petition, but will be refunded in full if for some unusual reason your petition is rejected.
If you are just curious about our lodge and want to attend an event, contact our Friend-to-Friend committee and they will help you, and answer any questions you may have about our fine fraternity.
