    I will be training to become an independent freight agent, I wouldn't mind getting to know some brothers who may be in the freight industry as well as manufacturing/warehousing. Looking to be an asset to your business.

    Views on a Travelling Entered Apprentice

    I visited all local lodges as soon as I was eligible to visit, it was a great experience and all brothers were very welcoming and kind. Highly recommended!

    Is there a Q and A after the 3rd degree?

    I remember learning my proficiency for each degree... I miss those days. I wish I had more time to learn and teach new Masons. Prior to a degree, I like to tell candidates to "listen well"

    So what is the best way to assure acceptance at the new lodge and what are the fees associated with the membership transfer? Thanks!

    Questions regarding membership.

    Hello brethren, It has been a long time since I logged on here, took me at least 3 attempts to recover my password! I have a question, I would like to look into dropping my current membership at my mother lodge and switching to a lodge closer to my current place of residence, what is the...

    Visiting Dallas/Plano Area

    Texas lodges are very casual when it comes to attire, I usually dress business casual, jeans and a nice shirt will suffice!

    In the workplace

    When I first moved to Texas, the two managers I communicated with are masons. I inquired about the fraternity and they guided me into petitioning. Until our office was shut down about a year after my arrival, we maintained a great work relationship which I truly miss.

    Hello from a new EA

    It feels quite hostile not to recognize an EA brother as such. But then again, different jurisdictions and regulations. Rest assured, out here in TX you are a brother as soon as you take that obligation and begin working towards the next degree!

I can relate to your story in the aspect of self creation and discovery, while I never committed any crimes or did anything I wouldn't be proud of in the past (I've never been a trouble maker) I definitely feel that masonry has filled a void in my life. The degrees in masonry...
