Erik's Masonic Journey

Fri, 10 Mar 2000

After several weeks of deep thought and pondering, I finally decided to petition for membership in the Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, a fraternal order known more commonly as the Freemasons. I was very nervous about doing this, but I finally got ahold of a member of Ashland Masonic Lodge 23 and was asked to visit their weekly morning coffee get-together. When I showed up, I was surprised to see that all of the attending Freemasons were at least twice my age; I estimate that most of them were at least in their mid- to late-60s. However, I suspect this is but a small portion of the local Lodge. As the coffee get-together is held at 10:00 in the middle of the week, younger members probably had to be at work.

The next step, from what I've read and heard, is for three of the Lodge's Master Masons to contact me. They'll come over, meet Valkyrie, and talk to us about Masonry and what it means and stuff. After I go through that three times, they'll vote on me.
