    I enjoyed your show on the Levec Tower.  Your guest, Ed Lentz, seemed to think that all of the fraternal insurance companies have vanished.  Interestingly, Woodmen of the World in Omaha is still around.  It seems to be a viable insurance company, but has lots of activities and programs for its members.  It also build quite a tower, the tallest building between Chicago and San Francisco in its time.  
    I enjoy your show as often as I get the chance to listen, and I wanted to share this tidbit.
