    Wouldn't want to rush into anything, would we? ;) :D

    (I'm just kidding- it took me over 2 years to get mine filled out & returned!)

    I was Initiated, Passed, and Raised in 2009, and have been active in my lodge since... I joined the SR this last weekend (we'll be going from 19-32nd degrees this weekend), and I'm planning on being active in both bodies.

    EDIT: totally forgot to put my age when i originally posted.... I'm 25

    Bigmel,
    Thank God for the Oldtimers!

    My teacher had a Life certificate for instruction at the time he taught me and then became Master of the Lodge after serving 17 years as Secretary. He is a Past Master of at least one other Lodge. He was given the Golden Trowel and has a 50 Year Certificate.
    We spent many an afternoon in his study and under the old oak tree in his backyard as he taught me the lessons.

    While Masonry is undergoing a Renaissance with new young men, we desperately need to cling to some of our traditions that are taught to us and held on to by the men who have been here for a while.

    Glad to see that you are still active after 46 years Brother.

    28 Years old when I was raised in 1995. Appointed JD a month after I was raised.
    Still a Blue Lodge Mason. Thinking of the York Rite and Scottish Rite perhaps this year or next.
    Conferred the FC and MM degree on my nephew who petitioned at age 19, raised at age 20.

    Bro Tim your conferment for Bro mason Simmons was awesome, his MM degree was one of the best degrees that I have been to yet. (o:

    On a side note I was finishing up the floors of our lodge Saturday night (still need to seal them) so I was not able to make it out to Salado's award ceremony.

    And a huge congrats to you on recieving the Golden Trowel!!
