The Reason why I wanted to be a Freemason was to Become a Better Man, before God, Country, Neighbor, Family and MY Self.

My Search for More light was just that. A Search. I wanted to become a mason for a long time. This past Summer was indeed that right time. I worked with several masons in the Atlanta area but i lived in Covington which is east of Atl. So I knew the Lodge I wanted to become a member of. So the search began. I know to become a mason you must ask a mason. One Sunday i spent looking for either rings or lapel pins of brothers that might attend my church so I could ask. NOT ONE. so then I called my minister and asked him if he knew of one in our congregation. He did not know of one but has worked with one at one time with the Advocate. He gave me his name and number. I called him and He did not attend the lodge i wanted to join but he knew of a brother i could get in touch with. His Name was Al Head. I called Al and he asked me to come right over. I went to his house and spent 2 hours with him. He then said well let me make some calls and Ill get you a petition.


He called me that next Sat and said we are having a Friendship Breakfast at the lodge and I want to invite you to the Lodge. I was Excited. I met a lot of the brothers and turned in my petition in and paid the Fees... I was balloted in and was initiated Sept 27... Passed Oct 18....Raised Nov 20 . My First full meeting as a master mason was in Dec. there I was asked to become a Jr Steward. Yep Getting my feet wet in a hurry. I just turned in my Masters Cat. a week ago and got my bible and Apron... Man the journey to the East has been Fun and I cant wait to continue my Journey the rest of my Life...
