    Have you heard the story behind it? The GLOT gave the mason astronaut a special dispensation (or something) to establish a lodge on the moon. I don't know the story good enough to tell it, but my mentor/instructor was a NASA guy and he was always ratchet-jawing about it.

    For some reason I thought you had to be a NASA employee to join.

    I am a member. They meet 4 times a year around the state. I have an application I could send (PDF) to you, if you would send me a scan of your DL and Dues card. (because I haven't met you in person, I don't think)

    Buzz Aldren dropped a charter on the moon (From what I've been told) He and some guys in the control room here in Houston went on a secured channel and offically opened a lodge and then called it from labor etc...(This is second hand second hand information, so please do not kill the messenger!) I like being a member, it's a great conversation piece and they have the kickinest aprons!

    yea and then UGLE started crying about it and got juris-my-diction over it.

    so Tranquility is under the Jurisdiction of 2 GL's.

    any brother want to confirm this?

    I certainly have no problem with GLOT claiming the moon. However, if some green looking men ever tries to take it away from you boys just give this ol' KY Hillbilly call and I will fly to your aid.

    I would expect that it was Buzz Aldrin.

    I'm a steward at Waco 92 and we host the Tranquility Lodge once a year for their Installation of Officers. This was my first year being a part of it and I was in the kitchen busy most of the time but I enjoyed meeting several of the members and their wives. A pleasant bunch of people.
