Notes: 
-Masonic lodges have three separate degrees or ceremonies: Entered Apprentice, Fellowcraft, and Master Mason, given in that order.
-A lodge is a group of Masons, meeting in a specific location at regularly scheduled times.  Many lodges meet in a building called the Masonic Hall. The state Grand Lodge grants charters (permissions)  to the Subordinate Lodges within that state. The subordinate lodges then operate under the bylaws and regulations of the Grand Lodge.
-The officers of a lodge are the Worshipful Master (presiding officer), Senior and Junior Wardens, Treasurer, Secretary, Senior and Junior Deacons, Senior and Junior Stewards, and Tiler (Tyler). The first five officers are elected and installed annually; the WM appoints the other officers each year.
-The WM generally serves for one year and then is called a Past Master, although as a PM  are equal in status to ordinary members.
