Article 5

Masonic Relief Fund

Sec. 5.1. (Reg. 38.040). Wayne Lodge shall maintain, within its general fund, an amount of money equal to or greater than $1.00 per member to be identified as the Lodge Relief Fund. This fund shall be drawn upon for no other purpose than for extending relief to Freemasons or their dependents, and all such relief extended shall be drawn from this fund.

Should the balance in this Fund become less than an average of one dollar per member, it shall be replenished by voting money to it from the Lodge General Treasury or voting an assessment against the members for that purpose. Failure to pay such an assessment shall be equivalent to non-payment of dues and shall be dealt with in the same manner and carry the same penalty.
