So recently, I have put into action, thoughts that I have had and been contemplating for quite some time. (nearly twenty years) I have submitted a petition to join the John W. Durst #716 Lodge of the Free & Accepted Masons. I have wanted to become a mason for about as long as I can remember. A number of influential men in my life have been masons, and it seems that a number of my past family members have been as well. It is my understanding that following the lodge meeting of last week when my name was presented, I will soon be contacted by some of the brothers from the lodge for an interview. Then I am voted on and begin the working part of the process. I hope to relate a few of my experiences here as time passes. I am very excited and looking forward to working with sch a great group of men.
