Hempstead - Waller Masonic
Lodges Joint Fund Raiser 2003

The Liendo Civil War Reenactment,
A Real Texas Style Money Maker

In a Small Town Texas Lodge like the Waller Masonic Lodge where we have less then 100 members, Fundraisers have to be a way of life for the Lodge. With Endowed Memberships and 50 year members exemptions the annual dues bring in just less then 65% of the funds needed just to operate the Lodge. Therefore additional sources of income must be found, not only to help operate the Lodge, but to support Masonic and local charities.

Hempstead and Waller Lodges join together in November to sell food at the Liendo Plantation Civil War Reenactment near Hempstead, Texas. The 2003 show had very good weather Friday and Saturday. Sunday started good, but about 11:00AM a cold norther with a light rain came through and we were all wraping up with anything we could find before the day ended. We sold bar-b-que brisket sandwiches, stuffed baked potatoes, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hot dogs and homemade peach cobbler with Blue Bell ice cream. We also had chips and drinks.

It Takes A Few Minutes To Load.
