The Fellow Craft degree is my favorite. Enjoy the evening.

Brethren:

On Wednesday, March 15th 2017 I will be raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason at Celestial Lodge. I have been looking forward to this moment since the day I asked to join over a year ago. I have been told it will be a night I will remember forever and am looking forward to becoming a full contributing member of the craft and fraternity.  Thanks to all the Brethren for their words of encouragement and support to date. Also looking forward to the next assignment.

Fraternally,

Bro. Hoyo

Enjoy the evening.  I am sure it will be memorable.  What a great night for you and your lodge.  I encourage you to remain active afterwards as there is much more for you to learn if you are willing.  Congratulations.

Brothers, please help me,
I am a recently raised master mason and my lodge asked
me to help with ritual, which I was glad to accept.
I have learned the Middle Chamber lecture about 50%
and I need help from a ritualist. Can you put me in contact
with a ritualist brother? I live in New York City.

First, you should go to your own lodge for this kind of help. Learning Ritual is something that cements the relationship between brothers. The Master of the lodge will be able to connect you with someone to work with. The man who was kind enough to help me with my Ritual is now one of my most cherished friends. I nominated him for and he recently received the Joseph Warren Medal, one of the highest awards in Massachusetts Freemasonry.

Second, what does your post have to do with someone being excited to join the Fraternity? Please keep your posts on topic. We expect this kind of thing from people outside the Fraternity and will often split their threads.
