    I feel your pain in a way. I was told by my WM today that was probably going to happen to me after my trip through to the East and our current Sec decides to step down. He was planning on this being his last year, but he's had so much fun this year watching a WM with a good line and a purpose really govern the lodge instead of simply existing, that he's decided to stay on a few more years.

    Actually, it's not that bad once you figure out what you're doing- only took me a couple of years! I would go to a few Grand Secretary's schools- there's a lot of good information presented at them. Also, you'll find that most other Secretaries will be glad to answer any questions you might have, as will the Grand Secretary and his staff if you get really stuck. If all else fails, ask owls! :wink:

    I was a very active pro-tem Tiler. We had an opening in the line, so I was given the opportunity to go into the line as Senior Deacon. Looking forward to sitting in the East! If tradition prevails, I'll be attending a Lodge as an old has-been during my last year of school. I like that idea.

    I've just about completed my first year as JD (my first position in the lodge). I actually got out my Grandfather's WM gavel (we had it custom made for him out of Acacia wood just before he was Installed as WM) and rubbed 'er down with Murphy's oil soap, because in a little over 4 years, she'll be back in service in the East!
