Winston Churchill said that “we shape our buildings, and afterwards our buildings shape us.” An afternoon spent reminiscing with Eddie Sears, Betty Anne Cody, Carole and Howard Hovde in the Laity Lodge Great Hall seemed to prove the point. Most of the Lodge traditions we take for granted today found their origin in the work of these friends. Likewise, as you listen to their stories you’ll learn how the Lodge made a profound impact on them.

As a renovated Lodge slowly comes into view, we look forward to the continued shaping impact of the space on all of us who enter.
