I've met with Brothers from a couple of different lodges in my area, all with different dynamics and selling points. One of them is spectacularly old, which was very appealing, but it just got pipped to the post by another, which is where I am hoping to be initiated in early 2021.
These meetings have mainly been at the building in which the lodge meets, however I have met with the WM from one lodge a few times in the city for more informal chats over coffee. I also met with Brothers (and partners) of the spectacularly-old-lodge at a Burns Night dinner at their lodge building.
I look forward to meeting more Brothers as my masonic careers continues; and await the time I am permitted to visit other lodges to gain more experience of how different things are despite the shared history.
