The Little Egypt Grand Lecturers Club was formed on May
24, 1994. Brother V. Ray Landers obtained Mt. Vernon lodge No 31 for the first meeting. We met on the last Thursday of each
month for several years before changing it to the last Wednesday. Brother Landers was elected as te first president and Brother
Robert E. Ford as Secretary. It was decided that the work in the club should be held to the highest standard for both ritual
and floorwork. This is still our standard. We have been highly successful. It is the first school of its kind in Southern
Illinois and the most successful. We are now a official Grand Lodge School for Lecturers in Illinois. We have contributed
$600 to the Grand Lodge Drug fund in Illinois. This fund was established in 1989 for the prevention of drug and alcohol abuse
Brother Ed Robinson suggested we should have a web site for a list
of meetings in Southern IL. This would help lodges set meetings without conflicting with a nearby lodge's date. Also, it will
keep our members informed about activities in the Southern Area.
I decided to make a web site for Little Egypt Grand Lecturers Club and post the dates on this site. If
you have suggestions on improving this site, contact me. I welcome suggestions.
