    Hello all. I am from Connecticut and just beginning the journey. Looking forward to one day hopefully calling you all brothers. Sure I will have a lot of questions as last night was my first dinner at the lodge and have been invited back for a second in a couple of weeks. Just disappointed it took me so long to make this step but everything happens for a reason.

    Have a great day!

    Welcome and good luck with your journey. Many years ago I lived in Stamford and worked on the Post road. I have cousins in Uncasville. Let us know if we can be of any help.

    Yes the food and conversation was great. You honor me by calling me brother but I have not yet earned that title. Hopefully soon.

    Thanks all for the kind words. I think my biggest worry is that I don’t know anyone in the lodge and it might be held against me.

    I highly doubt it will be held against you in any way. In my case I knew no one in my Lodge, though I do have a friend who is a member of another lodge who help make introductions. Just expect that the brothers in the lodge will want to get to know you before you petition, as, no doubt you will want to get to know them. Relax and be yourself and it will be fine!

    I had no idea, I was born and raised (but not, you know "raised") in Stamford, CT. I worked just off the Post Road in Norwalk, and my Dad worked on the Post Road in Stamford at the Dodge Dealer. Small world

    Greetings and welcome. Becoming a Freemason was one of the best decisions I made. My advice, be patient, stick with it, but keep expressing your desire to join to those brothers, without becoming a pest :) Remember, Freemasonry is not a sprint, it's a marathon, a way of life which should guide you to a better life... that's the idea anyway :)
