    Brethren:

    This may sound like a strange question; but, is it necessary to demit from a lodge that you are an endowed member of? I do not plan to attend Lodge "A" any longer.

    Also, I am currently SD of Lodge "A". Due to the pandemic, I have been placed in the same position at said lodge, and we have not completed our installation for the upcoming Masonic year. I am also a member of Lodge "B", which I plan on attending going forward. Both lodges are located in Texas.

    I have no desire to burn any bridges at Lodge "A", and would like to leave on amicable terms. What would be a proper way to inform the WM that I no longer wish to continue with the progressive line?

    I truly appreciate your insight.

    Just tell him so. You don't need to give a reason- just that you no longer wish to serve.

    As you cannot take your endowment with you, there is no reason to demit.

    Texas allows multiple memberships, yes?
    As to the line I agree with Bro. Bill; just be honest and let the Brethren know your heart.
