Whats the status of the Lodge these days Mike it would be a shame to see its demise was a big part of my life while in Omund. What will happen to all the artifacts still inside,

@John, Optima is in a state of darkness now, has been for the last four years.

The temple and the foyer are still exactly the same,

The keys are with one of the PM's ,

Sadly, the numbers dropped below the required number . There are still two/three Optima that travel to Phoenix of Namaqualand for meetings. Seeing the the historical connection between the two lodges.

PM John Darne, now retired to Cape Town, organises MARK meetings at OPTIMA once a year.

Indeed a unique Temple going to be covered by the sands of time...
