    Four of us in the Knights of St. Andrew have been selected for the Honor Guard at the reception dinner tomorrow night for the newly elected Grand Master. I will be carrying the National Flag. Wish me luck that I don't trip and fall or something equally embarrassing, lol.

    Well, everything went off without a hitch. There was a big crowd and everyone seemed to have a great time. The Honor Guard as even comped dinner for their services. A great night!

    I am considering petitioning the Knights of St. Andrews at our Fort Wayne Valley Scottish Rite Lodge.

    As I said before I highly recommend The Knights of St. Andrew. They are the service organization within the AASR.

    Our stated meeting is on Tuesday and I have the petition filled out. I'll drop it off then. :)

    It went really well. The entire meeting is very informal compared to Blue Lodge. We sat with the Knights of St. Andrew for the meeting and the AfterGlow. We had a great time. I haven't turned in my petition yet. I want to get a good understanding of the various bodies and guilds before I submit my petition.

    On Sunday I'm going to have a Scottish Rite conversation with one of my Blue Lodge brothers who is also a 33rd degree. He is going to give me the lay of the land of the organization - if that's the right word and explain how all of the pieces fit together if that makes sense. With the convocation I have degrees in all of the bodies and I want to understand the officer structure of each body and council. Once I understand, I will probably still petition KSA because that's where my friends are and from there I'll decide where else to participate. I'm thinking about joining a cast, that might be fun too.

    That's what I did. I waited 6 months after being raised to join appendant bodies but a lot of people join right after being raised. Each person has to do what is right for him, to each his own. I didn't join Masonry until after I retired. I have plenty of time to devote to my duties and that is a good thing....I hold 6 offices and in about 4 weeks I'll probably hold 7, lol.

    I'm semi retired at this point I'm an adjunct instructor for Harrison College based in Indiana. I primarily teach exclusively online now. I started out in the classroom. I teach Group Dynamics, Leadership, Management and a couple of other classes when I get the chance.

    I'm going in the officer line at our Blue Lodge, in one of the appointed positions. Our WM and incoming WM have talked to me and I said I didn't join to sit on the sidelines. I want to be in the East when the time is right, whenever they think I'm ready and I know that is 5 or 6 years away. I served as a Jr. Steward for a recent EA Degree

    For the Scottish Rite, I want to eventually serve as an officer in one of the bodies but I need to understand how it works so I'll wait to do that, but I don't want to sit on the sidelines long so I will most likely join KSA and its a good fit because my name is Andrew. :D
