I submited my petition in the spring and had to wait until fall because we go dark in the summer, just too hot in the building.
My interview was funny, the interview part was over in less than one minute. Two older brothers met me at a resturaunt to talk and have some pie. They asked me if I had any previous intrest or connection to Masony and I told them as a kid I played in the Shrine Youth Band. They asked if I still played and when I said yes they said great, that's all we need to know. Practice is at 7:00 on mondays, be there. They are both members of our small but active band and knew my uncle and grandfather from the band as well as the lodge. It was wonderfull talking to them and hearing stories about my grandfather and uncle when they were young.
The dream died at Altamont. Move on.
