Who we are:
We are the Masons. We believe in helping others. We believe there is more to life than pleasure and money. We respect the opinions of others and we all want to grow and develop as human beings. Masons are moral, honest men who work together to improve themselves and their communities. Our motto is "friendship, morality, and brotherly love."
Masonry and You:
Are there things you want to accomplish in your life? Are there ways you want to enrich yourself? Do you enjoy being with people you like and respect? As a Mason, you'll find friendship and fraternity. You'll develop life skills like self-confidence, leadership, and effective communication. You'll learn to work as part of a team - and to better yourself as you help others. Think about becoming one today.
Masonry is the oldest fraternity in the world, although no one can claim to know its exact origins. There is evidence that the Masonry we know today probably grew out of the guilds of stonemasons who built the castles and cathedrals of the Middle Ages. In the U.S., many of the Founding Fathers were Masons, including Benjamin Franklin and George Washington. From presidents, astronauts, and sports heroes to carpenters, CEOs, and bus drivers, millions of Masons have made our country what it is today. As Masons, history, tradition, and pride are central concepts in o0ur lives.
