aproching my 3rd

Postby Dave B » Tue Mar 17, 2015 11:34 pm

Hi all
Just to introduce myself
I am a fellow bro in Bolton, I handed my petition into my lodge in December 2013 after contacting them on the Internet.
I was made an EP March 2014 and then to FCM November 2014.
I am due to be raised to MM in April 2015 and very much looking forward to it.

But in the meantime I have done the WTs at a candidates 1st plus and also at our WM installation. I have "I think" had the honour to be asked to be the lodge treasurer next year .

So things have been moving fast in my masonic life, I will be pleased to get this year over so I can catch up with things.

Pleased to meet you all.
Dave

Welcome bro........ I had similar sudden "promotion" but it was after 10 years in the columns
Young family and shift work meant I was often unsure of being able to attend but usually managed
Then I was a bit more sure and asked if I could be of use in some side office..... Likwise traeasurer ! Plod on!

Hi all
Well its the day after my 3rd degree and raised to Master Mason.
The night was not what I was expecting, yet it was it was more than I was expecting all in one.

The night gave me a lot of information to remember plus in itself lots to things to think about from the 3 hours of ritual.
Which in itself has made my forthcoming journey through freemasonry more exciting. I keep thinking "if only I had started the journey much earlier in my life"

I will look back at last nights events with affection for my brothers of my lodge and the hard work that was put in to make it a night to remember.
Also from the kind words that was said at the festive board that evening.
Dave
