    Line Progression Good Thing / Bad Thing?

    It is sad but true,a lot of times a "warm body" is put in the line cause no one else steps up.The Brother is flattered and does his best but doesn't really know what he is in for.He finally sees the writing on the wall,bails out,then the "process" starts again.

    Just Curious

    I could not agree more.We have a Member that as soon as a member is raised he is on them to join SR.That,IMHO,is not the way to go.

    Golden Trowel

    In California,we have a similar award called the Hiram Award.Who gets it however is controlled by the Lodge,GL has no say so.In my Lodge we tend to award it to a Brother rather than a PM.It is the highest honor a Lodge can bestow on a Brother.
