The earliest form of a lodge plan book was a set of rules developed to help run the lodge. Lodge Chief Don Martin of Walla Walla organized a committee to draw up a set of rules. The first Rules and Regulations booklet was published in 1955. Johnny Williams of Richland edited the booklet. Merle Vogel of Richland designed the cover, that of an Indian dancer. These rules were used to guide the lodge for the next thirty years. Amendments were made from time to time, but remained basically the same as first developed. A complete overhaul was made in 1985 by the executive committee. A weekend meeting was held at Camp Elkanah near La Grande where the Annual Plan Book was introduced. This represented almost one year of developing a completely new set of rules and regulations to govern the lodge. In March of 1986 a special executive committee meeting was held to go over revisions and modifications in wording of the plan book. It was held at Lehman Hot Springs. The 1986 plan book featured not only the rules and regulations of the lodge, but much more, including the duties of all lodge officers and committee chairen, the lodge budget, the calendar of events, and a listing of all current lodge and chapter officers and their advisers. Both the 1985 and the 1986 plan books were developed by Lodge Chiefs Tony Finfrock, Murray Kuhns and Lodge Lay Adviser Bill Buchmiller. Modifications were made in the 1988 and 1989 plan book under the supervision of Lodge Chief Kyle Lynch. The basic format was the same as the original 1985 plan book, however. In 1990 the lodge rules and regulations were again modified to reflect changes in lodge vice-chiefs. The Lodge Rules Book was published in January of 1990 and included only the duties of the chapter and lodge officers. At the end of the booklet a diagram of the lodge organization was included.
