I have been dragging my feet for a ver long time.  I attended a Master Mason in one day event and went through all the degrees.  I am a part of a lodge in Salt Lake City but moved to another town.  After the MM in one day event I was instructed to go to the lodge in my new town and have them pass me off.  I attended lodge once and was set up with some gentleman to study in order to pass it off.  I was then promoted at work and got very busy and was unable to got back to the lodge.

 It has been about a year since then and I really want to get back into it but I don't know if I should just show up to lodge?  

I do pay dues, is it okay for me just to start showing up to the meetings even though I am not officially apart of this lodge down here?

Brother Monson,
I'm going to make some assumptions: you were initiated, passed, and raised in a "regular" lodge; have a valid dues card; aren't suspended or expelled. If my assumptions are correct then you would be good to go. I would suggest going to the lodge on a practice and education night so you can get a quick refresher. I would say you would be VERY welcomed and any questions you have would be gladly answered.

I don't have dues card but at the end of the event I was required to pay the dues for 2012.  As far as passed goes, I think I need to pass off some memorization and grips, etc. to be official.  I guess the fact I don't know any of the masons in this town makes things more awkward for me.  I know if I was in Salt Lake still this would have been done a long while ago.

I attended a Festival style for the York Rite, and while I am grateful to be allowed into the Chapter/Council/Commandery, I do feel the loss that I am not as proficient in the work as I am with the first 3 degrees.

Having said that, my 2 Blue Lodges would definitely welcome you regardless if you were current or not. if you weren't, we would help you get current and facilitate your move from your home lodge.
