the Cave Room

Our Approach

We are working on the exact wording to put here, but suffice it to say we are ultimately here to be of service to YOU within the scope of our abilities and resources.

Our Story

As we have said elsewhere, our chapter's beginnings were in the early years of the 20th Century.  We actually have photos of some of the gatherings from the early years when we originally met at the Tippecanoe County Fairgrounds in what is now known as the "Home Ec Building".  My how fashion has changed.

We strive to continue the goal of not only keeping and restoring our facilities operations but to serve as the area extension for the Humanitarian Foundation of the Supreme Council of Grottoes of North America.  Furthermore, as per our Motto of "the Master Mason's Playground" we provide affordable venue services for any of the area lodges and appendant bodies upon their request.  This invitation is further extended to all Fraternal and Sorority needs as allowed by their own charters and bylaws.

When we say Prophet...

As a chapter of the Grottoes of North America, the Merou Chapter is a collective effort, chaired by the "Prophet Monarch" and his Officer Line.  The operations of the building, including the Bartenders and Staff are a mix of Chapter Members and close Volunteers who given an immense amount of their time to contribute to Merou's ongoing survival.
