Hello from East Anglia, UK

Postby Exel » Fri Feb 14, 2014 11:49 am

Just popping in to say hello, I'm 35 and have been interested in Freemasonry for a while. I am being initiated at my local lodge on Wed 19th Feb.

As you can imagine I have some nerves at the moment but I'm sure it'll all be worth it. I look forward to chatting to you guys as things move on.

All the best, J
Jamie.

Welcome, being an East Anglian mason, amongst other Provinces, it would be useful to know which lodge you are joining. I'm sure you will enjoy it. Come back and tell us what you thought.
Fraternally,

Bernie

Brothers,

(27) Well what a great night - I was tonight initiated into Doric Lodge 1193 at Wymondham.

All went well and it was a really good experience. People were all friendly and welcoming I enjoyed the festive board afterwards. I got invites to another lodge already but I am hoping now to have a bit of time for reflection before seeing another candidate's initiation so that I can see and understand things from the other perspective.

Speak soon,

J.
Jamie.

Well hello all my Brothers!

Just a quick update to say I am studying now for my 2nd in Sept. Did a quick practice in lodge the other day and all looking ok. I have to say the friendship and support I have received so far has been great.

I am currently looking to assist with the marketing of my lodge.

All the best,

Jamie
