Cool, so you petitioned a PHA lodge. Yes I am very familiar with the Columbus area. My hometown, Albany, is like an hour an a half away. Mt. Pisgah #53 is a great lodge in the columbus district from my understanding. Get as much information from PM Dave Gillarm as you can. He is a very informed brother. He is the Historian for the entire Grand Lodge and knows his stuff. I'm about 2 and a half from Columbus.
