I live in Southern Illinois, before my stroke 2 years ago, we visited a handful of lodges for degree work.in my home lodge before I demited, we had an issue with members that was with the widow sons that would show up to degree work in full leather and chains. We finally had it and said if you want to show up, leave the leather at the door, after that they stopped showing up, a friend of mine does degree work in a couple lodges up north where this masonic bike gang shows up for degree work, but hit the bar across the street wearing the square and compass, then walking back to the lodge,now the district deputy was informed of this, and had nothing to say about it. 5 years ago the GLof ILLINOIS was to separate themselves from the widow sons, but never has. Our last 3 GM's turned the heads and looked the other way. What is your opinion about them showing up in full leather and a large s& compass on their back ?
