    I am a Member. It is a stated meeting of Masons. You do not have to be a Member of a Texas Lodge, live in Texas or otherwise be a Texas Mason.

    Membership in 2000 does not make one a Texas Mason if they are from a different jurisdiction.

    The story of how the claim was made is on the Lodge Website

    Since we never really went to the moon, how does this work? I mean how can GL of Texas have jurisdiction over a place that no one has ever been?

    This thread was posted with the general belief that we have been to the moon! Now if you wanted to put a thread up in the conspiracy part that might be a good topic. I have always heard that some believe the moon landing was staged and I would like to know more but as for this thread we need to keep it on topic. Thanks for the curve ball though A7Z!! :)

    I took A7V's post as a joke, Rhit.

    I know he meant nothing by it, but I can easily see this starting a debate so I wanted to encourage a new thread on the topic.

    Saturday 08/29/09 10:30AM - Tranquility Lodge #2000 - will meet at Alexandria Lodge #398, 1415 Horseshoe Drive, Alexandria, LA. This will be a historic meeting – the first time that Tranquility Lodge has met outside of the state of Texas. I’m very pleased to say that MW Jeff Webb, Grand Master of Louisiana, and MW David Counts, Grand Master of Texas, both gave their enthusiastic permission for this meeting to take place. By the way, both of these distinguished gentlemen are members of Tranquility Lodge No. 2000. If you plan to attend this meeting, please let me know by June 30, 2009. This way I will be able to let the brothers in Alexandria know approximately how many brothers from Texas they should expect. Those of you have served as stewards know how important this information will be. There was some thought about seeking permission to confer a Texas degree at this meeting after lunch, but it has been decided not to do so at this time. This meeting will be devoted to letting our brothers in Louisiana know about Tranquility Lodge and enjoying a time of fellowship with them.

    That is super tempting. If only I was a MM, I would totally go.

    So I have a Petition, is there any member that I could put down for a recommendation? I'm willing to provide a copy of my dues card if needed.

    BTW, is Tranquility similar to the TX Lodge of Research in that you can wear the apron in Blue Lodge? The apron is wicked!

    Also I believe the apron has special dispensation, so yes it can be worn in blue lodge

    We have several members of Tranquility lodge here in granbury. We actually hosted one of their meetings last year. It was great to meet with them.

    One of our lodge's very active members was a charter member and active in its formation. If some of you fellas are keen I'll join, it would give us an excuse to get together and raise hell once a quarter :thumbup:

    It is indeed a very sharp apron :)
