After inquires to several local Masonic lodges over the past couple of weeks, I was invited to Gray Lodge #329‘s informal educational meeting last Thursday.
I can say without a doubt that it was one of the most enjoyable couple of hours I’ve had in the recent past. I met a very friendly bunch of guys, saw a really nice lodge building, and had a good hamburger. During dinner, there was no talk of world domination, but there were a few complaints about Windows Vista.
I’ve decided to petition this lodge for the degrees of Freemasonry, and will be turning in my paperwork next Thursday. After that, my petition will get reviewed at their next stated meeting in early August, and then an investigational committee will be assigned to interview me. If that goes favorably, the lodge will then vote on my petition.
