From the time I could remember I would see my grandfather leave the
house all dressed up (in his tux) and a big black bag. Being only six
or seven years old at the time didn't mean anything to me.
I did remember at Christmas time my brother and myself would have to
go bed early as every year my mother would make sandwiches and treats
for some friends of his who would come to the house, I later found it
was Past Masters as well as the officers for the following year.
I remembered seeing his Masonic Certificate in a fancy frame on the
hall wall but took years before I read it and asked what it was for. He
being from the old school would just smile. I asked my mother, she
explained as best she could.
When in my late teens I found my older brother had become a member
then found my uncle had alsobeen a member for years. Both whom I had
great respect for. My grandfather was a Master in 1930 and V W when he
passed away. He had a masonic funeral which filled the room I was very
To make a long story short I am in my 33rd year as a mason and have
enjoyed every minute even though I never sat in the chair of K S.
If anyone reading this is considering becoming a mason you only get
out of it what you put into it and it has never done anyone any
