I do not yet belong. My father, brother, and grandfather are and were past masters. My father was a 33 degree. I am about to start my journey very late. I am 47 years old. The Lodge I wish to join I only know one person who is a member. He is currently the master. Is it proper to ask the master for a petition, or is this mundane chore considered to be beneath him? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
