The meeting is preferred to be at your home. Your wife, girlfriend, parents or children are welcome to be present to ask questions or voice any concerns about your becoming a Freemason. This is also an opportunity for you to ask further questions you may have regarding Freemasonry, Tejon Lodge, and the process of initiation.
After the investigation is complete, the Investigation Committee will report their findings to the lodge at their next stated meeting. Tejon Lodge has one stated meeting per month, so it will take a minimum of one month to complete the investigation process. Once the report is presented to the lodge, the Master Masons present will vote by secret ballot on your Petition to receive the degrees of freemasonry. The secret ballot is Masonic custom and it must be unanimous.
