    I had the same question. Nola is a city near Napels, Italy. It is also an abbreviation for New Orleans. No idea what the reference is here.

    That is what Bro. Tony's referring to- "red Lodges" is the giveaway.

    I suppose if I could only choose one, it'd be blue lodge... if i could only choose one appendant body, it'd DEFINITELY be AASR.

    Yeah, sorry guys.

    New Orleans, LA (NOLA). There are only 5 or so "Scottish Rite" symbolic Lodges ("Red Lodges") operating in the U.S. They are all under the jurisdiciton of the GL of Louisiana.

    Here's a little write-up on it.

    I voted York Rite. I've been a member for several years and I'm just now starting to appreciate the significance of the York Rite degrees. If blue lodge was a 3 layer cake then the degrees from York Rite would be the icing. :)

    I would really like to join the Grotto especially because they do so much for Special Needs children. I'm proud to be a member of the OES, Scottish Rite, York Rite and Shrine but next to Blue Lodge it's the York Rite for me.

    I've appreciated all the further light the Scottish Rite has to offer, especially in the form of guided self study.

    You will! You're looking too closely for more light.

    Third Thursday night at Holland 1, starting with dinner at seven and lodge at eight PM. Dark in August.

    Check out the Houston Valley website for calendar. We have a reunion coming up in September as well.

    If you aren't in, get with me and I'll get you petition. Light is available for those who search.

    I did York Rite, it's a natural extension of the Blue lodge.

    If you can only do one, Blue Lodge. Without it there are no others. If you dont count blue lodge and mean one OTHER... Scottish Rite. The University of Masonry. Want more light? Join Scottish Rite... Lite beer? Shrine

    I did. Austin Valley had their Lodge of Perfection on Nov 5th. Now I'm waiting on my second Master Craftsman Lesson to arrive. Man, talk about drinking from a fire hydrant...that's a lot of light!

    I have been a Mason for over 15 years, involved in my hometown Lodge (Salado #296). I have been giving a great deal of thought to the other bodies, but not sure if I am willing to make the commitment in time and/or money.
    I may yet join York or Scottish Rite (or both).
