About this site

This site is developed and maintained by Emmett Pate, Past Master of Kempsville Lodge. Like many sites, it started simple and evolved to its current state. During this time, two major changes occurred. The first was a switch to a "responsive" design using the Bootstrap toolkit to make the site more mobile friendly. More recently, the primary data source was switched to SQLite and a web-based admin frontend was developed to allow the majority of the site's day-to-day adminitration to be managed more easily.

I'm currently in the process of creating a version of the site that can be easily deployed for other lodges that might like to use it as a starting point for their own website. If you're interested in giving it a try, feel free to contact me at emmett@epate.com.

The source is available via a GitHub repository. See the README.md for information on its configuration and caveats.
