    What should we do with newly made Master Masons?

    Advice for a new Secretary

    Who'd you piss off? Lol. Just kidding. Get with a couple of different sec's in your district and seek their counsel, especially some who've done it a while. It also wouldn't hurt to seek info from your district deputy on things like demits, etcs.

    Apron opinions?

    My apron My jurisdiction (PHA AL) is forbids a lot of custom stuff. They even forbid working tools, etc. I kinda prefer it that way because it keeps a little uniformity. There are some gray areas (I want an English style apron one of these days)

    Where to find lodge furnishings?

    Hello all. My lodge is looking into sprucing up our meeting room. Where's a good place to find things such as pillars, ashlars, mosaic rugs etc? We found plenty of rough ashlars but those "good ones" are hard to find. Almost like in real life LOL.

Do you incorporate masonic instruction into your meetings? If so, is there a committee to handle various things such...

    How does your lodge handle & schedule conferring of degrees?

    Does your lodge confer degrees throughout the year with individual candidates, as they turn in their proficiency? Or do you confer degrees with a "class" of candidates, with multiple candidates receiving degrees at the same time? If you confer them individually, who is responsible for...

    Preserving aging aprons?

    Good day all. I have a couple of old aprons & gloves handed me by my grandfather before he passed away in 2002. I notice most aprons begin to discolor with age. Is there a way to preserve them? Perhaps by getting them framed or using some substance to hold the color and texture? Thanks in...
