Coxsackie, NY – Divested Lodge No. 7 has taken an entrepreneurial approach to membership by offering a unique deal during the upcoming shopping holiday season. Black Friday is typically known as a nationwide phenomenon that spikes sales and unofficially kick-starts the winter shopping season, but the brethren of Divested Lodge hope that it’ll kick-start their membership numbers instead.
Brother Joe Snow, Worshipful Master of Divested Lodge explained this amazing deal to The Past Bastard in between attempts to shove petitions our hands: “We’ve got a great deal going on here! We’ve dubbed this ‘Black(ball) Friday! Today only, prospective members get 50% off their petition and degree fees! But that’s not all! It’s also a day of redemption. If you have been blackballed in the past, you get a second chance with an automatic re-vote! Prospective brethren will want to act fast as the first 20 petitioners get a free lapel pin!” By Thursday morning, potential candidates had already lined up outside of the lodge with lawn chairs and sleeping bags in hopes of being the first to take advantage of Divested Lodge’s “best offer of the year.”
When asked how his lodge might handle the degree work and mentoring needs of the potential surge in candidates for Freemasonry, Wor. Snow explained that he had everything worked out: “If this ‘Black(ball) Friday’ event is as successful as we’re hoping it’ll be, our lodge officers needn’t worry about investing time and energy in all of the candidates; we’ll simply put them through the one-day conferral in January. They can learn everything else they need to know when we put them into the officer line.”
In order to take advantage of this deal, you must act fast. Doorbuster prices are only available from 9AM to 11AM this Friday so remember to knock 3 times for SAVINGS!
