    Hello all I stumbled across this forum a few weeks ago. I am not yet a Mason, I am currently in the candidate phase of the process. In Colorado there is a 6 month Candidacy period before any members will hand you a petition. I am well into Month 4 and feel right at home when I do have chances to visit the brothers at lodge. I have learned a great deal from them already and even more from this forum. Thanks to everyone who steadily contributes here and I look forward to chatting with you all more in the future.

    You will love this forum, even though we are not Masons, everyone treats you as a brother on here. It is really a breath of fresh air.

    Hey Mark, yeah I am getting that impression! Up till this point every mason I have met and had a conversation with has been very welcoming. I have no doubt that’s the story here as well!

    Thanks Warrior! I have dinner at the lodge this evening. The brother I have come pretty close with said we had a lot to talk about tonight so I am pretty excited.

    The lodge started up again after being dark. I filled out my petition, paid my fee and the first brothers I asked signed my petition. They were to vote on it and hopefully they find me favorable enough to start my investigation process could not be more excited!

    The investigation committee is coming over Friday to meet with me and my family. I am a bit nervous as we have some home improvement projects in the works on the exterior of our house and it looks in my opinion a little scary lol. But I suspect that it won’t matter.

    Received word that I was elected to receive the degrees of Masonry. My first degree is scheduled for Oct. 20th. I am beyond excited and honored I was found worthy.
