    Have not been to a lodge meeting in many years due to moving all over the U.S. and working constantly. Still belong to my original Blue Lodge in St. Joseph Missouri and have not been to a meeting since I left there in 1985. Wanted to find out the best way to get back into your lodge after being out for so many years. I am also a York Rite mason and was also a member of the Moila Shrine Club in St. Joseph Missouri and the Murat Shrine Club in Indianapolis. Would be interested to know the next steps in order to attend a scheduled meeting. Thanks and look forward to your response.
