The very first Discourse community I’ve ever joined was a brotherhood (Sisters were included too). It was during the summer a few years back can’t exactly recall the year. A summer school program in a school located near the pier located around the Hudson River Park. The owner or leader was some dark skinned individual who I believe was an advisor to the school. He talked about being a gentlemen and several other gentlemanly rules he taught. I was bored all throughout. I joined and left the same day. A year later or so I joined another Discourse community they’re like a real family to me.
