    Hi just wanted to say hello to all freemasons.
    I joined forum as I am trying to gather as much information as possible about freemasonry.
    I am in very early stage but hoping to get initiated as soon as I become trusted by our local brothers. Still long way to go as the season starts in September. Cant wait until I get my petition done

    Greetings from Corby UK

    So lodges under the UGLE go dark for half the year? @Glen Cook can you verify this?

    Friend I have never been to the UK so I personally have no idea, that is why I tagged someone that would know!

    Glen will certainly have more experience than me, but my lodge goes dark May-August and I believe that is not out of the ordinary here.

    Greetings and welcome from Texas!

    Side thought: If we were to go dark for three or four months of the year, the brothers might forget to come back...

    I'm in a UK lodge, we meet every month but it is not unusual in the UK for lodges not to meet for a couple of months over the summer period. During this time we get very busy with visitors in our lodge. Good luck MeCorby on finding a lodge to join in your area.
