The Banner, designed by W. Bro. O. O. Carter PDistJGW and painted by Marjorie Broodhagen was dedicated at the Regular Meeting of the Lodge on June 27, 1978 by the Chaplain.
Regular meetings of the Lodge were held five times a year with the installation meeting on the fourth Saturday in November. It is of interest to note that Degree Workings were also held prior to the installation Ceremony.

Honorary Members also delivered the Address to the Wardens and the Address to the Brethren.
In March 1977, a resolution in the name of the Master to increase the number of meetings to eight was passed unanimously.
