    Yesterday evening I visited a lodge for their meal and meeting. As is my custom as I was leaving I called my wife and informed her that I was on my way home. She informed me that approx. one hour earlier the Right Worshipful Deputy Grand Master had called my home wanting to speak to me. This was a surprise to me. Although I, of course, knew who was the Deputy Grand Master I have not been introduced to him nor have we spoken to each other before. When I got home I immediately returned his call. To my delight he asked me if I would accept a position as one of his District Deputy Grand Masters when he is installed as Grand Master this coming October. I gratefully accepted and thanked him for the appointment. Very much looking forward to October. Wish me luck!

    Congratulations and good luck!

    If it is half the work our DDGM does here in PA you will have your work cut out for you! Hard work but no doubt highly rewarding!

    It's a lot of work and responsibility but it was earned. You may not have known him very well but he knew of you and your work with the craft. Congratulations and enjoy.

    Congratulations on your preferment- I hope you enjoy your year as much as I did mine. I've heard it called "the best job in Masonry- the perfect blend of authority & responsibility".

    I remember that feeling. I got a voice mail message several years ago that was only "this is Deputy Grand Master Jim Christensen. Please give me a call when you get a chance." Since I had only met him in passing, my first reaction was "what am I in trouble for?"

    Congratulations! Serving Grand Lodge is very fulfilling.

    Congratulations brother.
    I wish I had the time to be a DDGM. Unfortunately, my spare time is almost nill between being the WM of my lodge, having my own business, and my family time seeing grand kids in various sports and programs. Maybe in a few years things will settle down to a point I may could move into a DDGM if asked.

    Thank you Brother. I understand where you are coming from. Family and work come first. I am retired so I have time to devote.
