Original Membership Cards
for Members inducted in 1942

The First Year of  Tamet Lodge No. 225

          National records show the charter date of Tamet Lodge as August 5, 1942. In all likelihood, Crescent Bay Council received notification of acceptance for their OA Lodge sometime after that date. Once accepted by the National Lodge, Tamet was authorized to purchase & issue membership cards to the original members inducted in 1942. The earliest cards known from Tamet Lodge are signed by Lodge scribe, Dick Rice, with dues paid to October, 1943.
          NOTE: OA cards from this era include a space to write the Lodge number. The October 1943 cards include the Lodge name, TAMET, instead of the Lodge number 225. They are the only Tamet Lodge cards prior to 1960 known to be filled out in this way.  If the National Lodge had issued a number to Tamet Lodge by October 1942, it is possible  the officers were unaware of it. Lodge No. 225 is first documented to November, 1942.

Warriors, Wisemen & Life Members  
Excerpt from September, 1951, Tamet Lodge Tom-Tom

The Tamet Lodge governing board instituted Life Memberships in the summer of 1950




Excerpt from 1951 Tamet Lodge By-Laws
Article II, Sections 1-3, p.1 & 2

 
      In the 1940's-early 50's, membership in Tamet Lodge was classified by the age of the inductee at the time of their nomination into the Lodge.

  Life Dues Receipt
September 22, 1951
 

 
Received from:  P. (Proctor) Weir.
Signed by: R. Grimaldi

 
           
      Those scouts nominated into Tamet Lodge prior to their twenty-first birthday were to always be known as Warriors, even after they had turned twenty-one.  Scouts and scouters aged twenty-one or older at the time of their nomination were to always to be known as Wisemen, eligible for life membership but not able to vote or hold office in the Lodge.
      This confusing system, along with life memberships, did not conform to National rules and may have beenunique to Tamet. Through multiple by-law revisions beginning in 1953, membership in Tamet Lodge was aligned with National rules.
