Sheesh, it’s crazy, I tell you.
I mean, a brother visits a lodge and enjoys it. He visits again, and soon becomes a regular.
He likes the lodge so much, that he decides to affiliate.
After he affiliates, he becomes an officer.
So, he’s installed as a Senior Warden, and suddenly there’s all this hoopla and next thing you know, there’s all these purple apron types at the installation, all the way up to various Grand Masters.
I mean, all this for a Senior Warden? Not even a Master, but a plain, old Senior Warden. Sheesh, what’s the big fat hairy deal, huh? I mean, haven’t any of these people ever seen an affiliated Mason as an officer before? Crazy, you know what I mean?
Oh, did I mention that the new Senior Warden is originally from a Most Worshipful Prince Hall lodge?
Welcome to A.F. & A.M., Bro. Mallory!
