It's very odd, but I've been a Mason since October 2011 (Raised September 2012) and only been in the OES since November 2014.  I'm presumed to be the incoming (next month) Worthy Patron of my Chapter, and I've never been Master of my Lodge....

In any case, any stock advice for a rookie Worthy Patron-to-be?

I think you will do just fine, pay attention and let the ladies and other men guide you.

Elections last night, so I'm no longer the *presumed* incoming Worthy Patron....I *am* the incoming Worthy Patron.  My incoming Worthy Matron, during the election, leaned over and whispered "is it too late to change my mind?"....heh......  yup!

Hang in there, you will be fine.

They elected you because they felt you have what it takes to do the job.

So now that I'm a Worthy Patron, should I be wearing my Worthy Patron's jewel when attending Masonic Lodges?

Chapter Regalia should only be worn at Eastern Star functions and funerals.
However it is the custom in our Chapter that the Worthy Matron has a traveling pin and she is to give her Worthy Patron his own pin. This he may wear anywhere he wishes.  It is also excepted that you can wear a silver or gold year pin and any other honors pin such as a Dr. Rob Morris Award pin.
I made Jerry and myself ribbons with all our award pins, they have a magnetic back so we do no put holes in our formal attire.  I did so we can change our name tags for each Order.  Yeah I know its cheating but I prefer to keep my clothes in good order.
