    I was raised this past August and last night I was installed as the Senior Deacon of my lodge. I am very proud and humbled at the same time. Now I am preparing and educating myself for my role in the initiations of the three degrees. Wish me luck.

    I move up to Senior Warden this coming Friday evening...

    Enjoy your year as Senior Deacon... I used the time to focus on the work, and get a good start on my certifications, which made the following year as JW a lot easier. Find a good instructor, get the words, floorwork, and presentation down well, and you'll not only be an asset to your home lodge, but to your neighbors as well.

    Much like yourself I too was appointed as the Senior Deacon of my lodge. Senior Deacon is a great position and it's much work however it's a great place to be. I know you will do well so keep us posted of your progress.

    Congratulations. Don't overlook your duties as SD. You control all the floor work, and that is the difference between a crisp degree and a sloppy degree. I'm sure you'll do great.

    I was installed as Senior Warden this past Friday evening... A nice surprise, the Marshal investing me with my jewel and escorting me my station was none other than the Grand Master, M:.W:. George Coffman ;-)

    The Deputy Grand Master, a member of our lodge, was serving as installing officer (and has accepted an invitation for a repeat performance this time next year ;-) )

    I have just been given the chance to be the Senior Deacon second time in a row. My last run at the position I must admit I was a bit over whelmed. Now the second time around I should be ok, knowing what to expect...

    I remember when I got voluntold I was going to be Senior Deacon. I was so nervous on my first degree night. Then I started to get into it and seek knowledge from the older members, started to memorize everything I could. I started traveling around to a lot of lodges doing degree work and got noticed by the Grand Master who appointed me Grand Lecturer (what a headache). Best time as a Mason. Good luck to you and it will be something you will end up not wanting to give up when your time comes to move on.
