About Bethel #29

Bethel #29 was granted their charter on October 26, 1948, with 64 members. Their meetings have always been held at the Independence Masonic Lodge, 120 S. Pleasant, Independence, MO, on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month.

There have been approximately 1000 girls initiated into Bethel #29.

Some of the fundraisers we have are garage sales, raffles, dinners, Tupperware parties, dish washes and selling cookie dough. We also have a parking lot at Santa-Cali-Gon Days in September. Some of our socials include sleepovers, skating, shopping, carriage rides at the Country Club Plaza, movies, and visits to the zoo.
