40% requirement

Being a non-profit organization taking 40% of the monies would hurt the lodge and would filter down to the places that are donated too, such as the Fire Departments, Agape and Christian Ministries just to name a few.  Several lodges do Easter egg hunts, Halloween parties, Christmas parties for children and these funds help with that.  Taking more from the lodges does nothing but hurt many many more in the long run.
