    Warrior and Keith, maybe we can make it happen sometime this summer. I'm about 4 hours from Warrior and I need to make a visit to a PA Commandery.

    Keep in mind Blue Lodges are Dark in July and August in PA.

    You should try to get to Philadelphia, the KT room at the GL building is pretty incredible.

    Indeed Norman Hall is very impressive and my 2nd favorite Lodge Hall in the Philadelphia Masonic Temple!

    Nice! My one visit was in that hall, then I got the “late night” private tour of the rest of the building. Renaissance Hall is epic, as well. Heck, they’re ALL incredible!

    Our line starts at steward. It is expected that you progress through the chairs. We usually do not jump people over others unless the brother being jumped has a reason for allowing it, is dropping out or it is obvious he is not healthy for the lodge

    Same here at Sam B. Crawford, and we've never had a WM repeat.

    1881.

    No repeats except for one and it was intentional. The repeater was a descendant of one of the founding members so he did another year for the 100th annaversara.

    I was the last Master of my home lodge, St. Matthews 906, before it merged with another lodge. We had not yet had a repeat Master but would have had to start after me if we had not merged.

    I'd say Steward would be the best office for a new Master Mason. The Stewards are there to assist, and that teaches a great lesson to the new Master Mason.

    We often have our WM serve 2 years in the east- our degrees are slower than many and this way the master has an opportunity to do all three degrees and really get comfortable with the position
