Talk about nervous! I'm very anxiously awaiting a call. They must have voted on my petition last night. The thing is, the petition is apparently voted on in a blackball ballot, although not always. This means that if one person doesn't like my petition, or thinks I'm not worthy of becoming a Freemason, then they can veto my joining.
I'm hoping to hear from them today regardless, so we'll see how it goes. I'll keep this page updated! In the meantime, I just found this extremely interesting page outlining the history of the New World's first Grand Lodge. Many thanks to Russ K. of soc.org.freemasonry for sharing this link!
