Association or Family?

May 06, 2016

Category: Members

Western Fraternal Life Association- that is what each of us are members of. Association is defined in the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws of Western Fraternal Life Association as the corporation formed, organized, and incorporated under the fraternal beneficiary association of laws of the State of Iowa, and carried on for the sole benefit of its members and their beneficiaries and not-for-profit and having a lodge system, with ritualistic form of work and representative from of government. Now, I do not know about the rest of you, but I like to think of Western Fraternal Life Association as a family. Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines family as all the descendants of a common ancestor. Even though we may not come from a Czech or Slovak descent, Western Fraternal Life Association accepts us all and we are a family. I say that because I have attended meetings at my local Lodge No. 44, Záře Zapádu, District 4 Meetings, MN State Meetings, and last year my first Western Fraternal Life National Convention. Western reaches out to community by way of the Members In Action program. My lodge has been fortunate to use this program, and we not only use it to help our lodge family, but our extended community family too.
