Becoming A Mason
Making Good Men Better
Masons are old fashioned. We believe in freedom. We believe in a Supreme Being. We believe in service to those who are less fortunate.
We believe in helping young people get a head start in life. We believe in the Brotherhood of Man. We come from every walk of life. From laborers to businessmen; from astronauts to entertainers; from soldiers to presidents. We stand tall, proud to be called Masons.

How To Join
There are a few important things you should know and consider before applying to join the Masonic Fraternity.
Masonry has in all ages insisted that men shall come to its doors entirely of their own free will; not from feelings of curiosity, but from a favorable opinion of the Institution and a desire to be numbered among its members.
