Greetings from Florida. I was just raised to the Sublime Degree of Master Mason on 4/13/13. I luckily was able to be part of another lodge’s degree, as I was the only FC in my lodge at this time. The degree team did a great job handling 6 canidates. I am thrilled to finally start my journing in Masonary. A friend of mine introduced me to Masonary almost 10 yrs ago. after doing much research and thinking, I decide to petition a lodge in Georgia. that lodge lost my petititon so I did another petition to them. After being initiated, I was given a printed uncoded copy of the EA book and told to memeorize it. After I did, I contacted my coach and was told that he left the lodge and that I had taken to long, I was granted an extension and tried again to go a give back but that instructor and left and taken much of hte lodges I paperwork with him.
I moved to Florida 3 yrs ago and waited the proper time and started the process again. it was well worth it. I can’t wait for the meeting on Tuesday, when I can wear my apron as a Master Mason.
