Submission:

I joined the Masonic Lodge because of a Great Uncle of mine. He was a 33rd degree and always impressed me with his kindness and love of people. I do not know if I will ever make it to the a 33rd, but I am trying. My Mother Lodge was Moriahyama No. 3, Tokyo, Japan. I joined in 1954. I now live in SC and that is why I belong to Seaside. I am a Past Master there.

I joined Eastern Star because my wife would not join alone. I have been Worthy Patron five times. Once in Massachusetts (West Springfield), twice in New York, Long Island, and twice in SC. I am currently serving my sixth time.
