Back on March I found out my dues card was mailed to me before the end of last year. Then Grand Lodge had to send me a copy, which never arrived.
Explaining the situation to a local Lodge Secretary, I was informed similar to what can be found at MasonicEducation.com
Since in this situation the postal service has been unreliable, and I had to endure a whole year without visiting other Lodges, I was forced to demit from my Mother Lodge.
But this is not the end. It is a new beginning, starting 2018 in a new Lodge in Florida.
