I'm not commenting looking for an invite, since you're a bit far afield for me. I just wish to offer a hearty congratulations!

You were a Rainbow Girl? Cool! Decided not to join the Eastern Star, though?

Yeah, made it to Worthy Advisor and whatnot... but its sorta on its way out here and Eastern Star/Amaranth did not appeal to me. But hey... line memorization ftw!

Aah, congrats on that. It's making a resurgence here in the DC area, in fact early this year a new Rainbow Girls assembly was formed with the support of my Lodge.

No invite needed, but congratulations!

Weirdly, I found a Chick tract in the Philly train station yesterday which features someone doing an exorcism to drive Baphomet, "the God of Masonry," out of someone's body. Yeah... how about no.

Won't be able to make the ceremony due to work, but congratulations!

Obligatory bad joke:
How many Masons does it take to install a Wolffit?

Federal Lodge #1 - a Masonic lodge (as in, the Freemasons)

Master of the Lodge - the Masonic title for the principal officer of the lodge. Worshipful is an honorific prepended to the title of any Mason who is serving as, or has served in the past as, the Master of a Lodge. The position is analogous to the President or Chairman of the Board of an organization, except with slightly more authority.
