I finally heard from the Investigative Committee and met with them after work on September 2nd. The interview went well, and was nothing at all like the interrogation that I expected. Two of the interviewers were Masons that I had met during the dinner back on August 6th.
Due to red tape my membership could not be voted on during the monthly meeting on the 3rd of September; the vote had to be postponed to the October 1st meeting. The problem was that I needed a certified copy of my birth certificate instead of a photocopy. Thanks to the Internet, UPS, and the Oklahoma Department of Vital Records I finally turned in a certified copy on Thursday the 4th.
I’ve been told that the Investigative Committee’s report was entirely favorable and there shouldn’t be a problem with the vote on the 1st. Amy and I will be attending the dinner and open portion of that meeting to hear a Masonic speaker who is coming in from out of town.
My initiation as an Entered Apprentice Mason has been tentatively scheduled for the evening of Thursday, October 9th.
