Sycamore Lodge has a process that allows any two or more lodge members to move forward with proposed lodge “projects”.

Once two members declare they would like to be a committee and are interested in pursuing a particular project, the project goes onto the lodge list of projects. That committee is then empowered to move forward with their project.
Regular written (or verbal) committee reports are expected to be given to other lodge members at the monthly business meetings. If the project requires any funding, the committee can complete a Funding Application.
Here is a list of the current approved lodge projects – yes, there are a lot of them! Not all of them are active, however, as we need more people to help turn them into reality.
