Your donation is tax deductible.

Only 1000 tickets will be sold in order to increase each persons odds of winning. Due to the limited number of tickets printed, make sure you get your ticket before they are gone because NO additional tickets will be printed or made available for this particular raffle!

MDN Laser Engraving® - "Wooden Nickel" Tupelo Masonic Lodge No. 318 F&AM

Links to this post
Tupelo Masonic Lodge No. 318 F&AM would like to thank Mr. Mike Neely at MDN Laser Engraving, in Tupelo, Ms. for his work on our version of the old "Wooden Nickel". MDN used a high tech, precision laser to convert our official lodge seal into a 3D portrait of the emblem, and then engraved it into a piece of wood and shaped into a size that is slightly larger than a silver dollar.

This "Wooden Nickel" concept is a 'working idea, in progress', with the intent being for our lodge to be able to give visiting brethren and new members, a token of our appreciation.

This unique, one of a kind seal, was designed by Bro John Paul Gomez, at FraternalTies and we are excited to see that it is now coming to life in a variety of ways.

We are very grateful to both, MDN Laser Engraving and FraternalTies, for their contributions and support of our lodge.

If you use Facebook and/or Twitter, below is a link to both companies business pages. Take just a moment to Like or Follow their pages. Both offer quality work with excellent customer service! Be sure to tell them that Tupelo Masonic Lodge sent you!
