The experience of Brother Suresh Dixit at Acacia Lodge #16 of Clifton, Virginia

"We accompanied Right Worshipful Brother Ralf Smith, District Grand Master of Dist. No 4. He is a towering personality of Freemasonry in the Grand Lodge of Virginia, very well respected. He is an encyclopedia of Freemasonry.

In his 80s he attend almost all the meetings of the lodges under him and guides all new recruits. He is a perfect ritualist and is normally deputed by the Grand Lodge to examine the candidate for proficiency in 2nd & 3rd Degree. For your information the candidate is not advanced into superior degree unless he proves himself in the former.

Such examination is often held in the open Lodge and Brethren are asked to vote for his proficiency. The vote has to be unanimous. We watched the Fellow of the Craft degree in this Lodge. The working again was absolutely fantastic and totally different from what we perform. The candidate was asked to prove his proficiency in Entered Apprentice and after approval was conferred the degree of the fellow of the Craft. Since this was a called meeting specially for the FC degree there was no dinner but after the meeting we were treated in Bar and also fed well."

W. Bro. Suresh Dixit, R.W. Bro.V. K. Tucker & W.M. W. Bro. Scott Springer
