Why do Men become Masons:
"Men become Freemasons for many reasons, yet there is a common thread that you hear over and over again. It generally leads back to a relative, coworker, teacher, or friend who one has admired - a man whose conduct or philosophy stood out as especially kind, generous, or honorable.
There is a long list of well known men from various walks of life such as Wolfgang Mozart, Theodore Roosevelt, Dave Thomas, Lewis & Clark, Edward Jenner, Davy Crockett, John Hancock, Harry Houdini, Mel Blanc, Louis Armstrong, John Elway, Eddie Rickenbacker, George Marshall, Booker T. Washington, Oscar Wilde, and Mark Twain just to list a very small amount of the numerous notable men that have been and are Freemasons. You will be in good company with men like these!"*
So what's in it for you...
- A world wide Fraternity
- Centuries of Tradition
- A Network of mutual Friendship and Aid
- Help for your Community
- College Scholarships
- Retirement Homes
- Spiritual Awareness*
Why shouldn't you become a Mason:
- If your goal is to make money by being a member
- If you are not interested in meeting people and making friends
- If you are looking for a religion - Masonry is not a religion, it only enhances your awareness of what your beliefs are.
- If you want to stay home and do absolutely nothing
Becoming a Freemason is a spiritual journey that takes a man on a path to make himself stronger and wiser, and what he does with those gifts to himself reflects upon him and the community around him. Just look at the various lists of notable men who are or have been Freemasons. You could be on that list someday, you just have to allow your full potential come to fruition.
