Chalmers Lodge was built as a rec hall for the Flames in 1940 by Mrs. Jeanette F. Chalmers of Vineland NJ as a memorial to her daughter Elizabeth "Bette" Chalmers who was initiated as a member of the Flames in 1931.

It has openable glass windows on the front (new in 2017), and huge, screened, glass-less windows with hinged wooden covers outside on the other three sides. Inside, there are built-in bench seats (that got new cushions in 2014) with storage underneath around most of two sides, a ping pong table (replaced with a new one in 2014), a foosball table (added in 2011), a yearly graffiti board (new

The Flames often spend a lot of their free time hanging out in Chalmers Lodge.
