After that there’s an Orientation at 7:00p on the Wednesday prior to the 4th Thursday, again this lasts about an hour and your sponsor and partner if any are encouraged to attend. Finally, Initiation is at 7:00p on the 4th Thursday. You and your sponsor are invited to a free steak dinner at 6:00p this night. The meeting lasts 1:30 – 2 hours.
