    Should the Order of the Eastern Star Accept...

    I have only been in OES about 6 years. I only remember one petitioner that did not qualify. In Texas just about any Masonic affiliation will be accepted. Wife, widow, mother, sister, daughter, Rainbow etc.

    Dues Card

    Your Secretary will have to affix the Lodge Seal on the dues card. Without the Seal, the card is unacceptable. It will not bother him to reorder a dues card. It only takes two minutes.

    Dating an Eastern Star..

    Why don't you contact a local OES and take her to visit with the members. You both can petition if you like the group.

    Endowed Memberships

    You are right Robert. Most Endowed Members are inactive and not aware that the Lodges are not recieving any money for their endowment. This year we sent out a letter explaining the situation and many Brothers responded with a generous donation. Thank You for thinking of Your Lodge.

    Brother Lodges

    You will also need to make arrangements in advance. From what I've heard they don't like surprise visits and getting permission to visit is not easy.

    Question about District Instructors

    Blake, didn't your DI make two visits with the DDGM during Griffins' term? I know they were supposed to. Anyway, they will come help if you request it. I don't think they like to come unless invited.

    I think the original question was referring to the apron that is presented to the MM in Texas. Most Brothers put their cherished "white apron" away in storage so they remain in "like new" condition. So, the original question was, what occasion would you feel worthy of wearing the Ceremonial...

    I heard some of the DDGM confiscated a few but never heard of any further action.

    EA's and the Book

    The book is easily found at Barnes and Noble ?sp? so anyone with the money can walk in and buy one. I knew about the book before I became a Mason. I never thought about getting one until I had learned the Q & A and had done my proficiency. Also, I didn't know where I could get one. All the...

    Grand Lodge of Texas Codebook

    In the past Masonry was so secretive that almost nothing could be talked about. I don't know if that was LAW or just the way it was done in Texas. I was raised in 2005 so I am new to Masonry, but I do have opinions. I was told by my mentors that if it is written anywhere in plain English from...
