My York Rite College is perhaps the strongest Masonic body in my area. It is made up of the most dedicated Masons. We certainly confer degrees. We not only confer the Knight of York, but our College has a Third Degree team that travels to local lodges and confers the third degree with the entire cast wearing tuxedoes. One of the biggest compliments we ever got was something I overheard when we were invited to a small, rural lodge. We were in the middle of the work when one of its members leaned over and told his buddy, "Now this is what I thought Masonry would be like."
