FHL@40: Kol Echad's look at the past changes direction as we look at the history of the lodge. This month: The return of Michael Kates.

Web Memories: Since Forestdale Heights first launched a web site, it has undergone numerous changes as the lodge evolved. Most of the changes and words that graced the site have long since vanished. However, recently we were fortunate enough to find a site that archives web sites and found some of our older material, which I am pleased to share with everyone. I hope you enjoy the trip down memory lane.

A 40th Anniversary Story: You know as I sit here contemplating the changes that have taken place in my life over the nearly 40 years that I have been a member of Forestdale Heights Lodge, I sometimes wonder where all those years have gone. Mind you I only have to look at my three married daughters all in their 30s now and my two grandsons and it soon becomes a reality that indeed the years have slipped away.
