Our summer labors have proven fruitful indeed. At our stated meeting we were all updated about the condition of Ms. Rachel Reed, past Honored Queen of Bethel 1 and dear family friend of many Friendship Brothers. I was impressed that every hand shot up (even those of our visitors) when a call for action came out.

We’ll be discussing the plans for this event at the September Stated Meeting. Read More
A Guiding Light
What is Freemasonry? To many of its members, Freemasonry is a guiding light to those who wish to improve themselves — better fathers, better husbands, brothers, and ultimately, better members of society. Its principles and ceremonies inculcate the importance of introspection and manifestation of personal improvement to the world at large.
It’s also a haven for long-lasting and meaningful friendships among those who might otherwise have remained at a distance.
In short, it’s an organization that fosters fraternity, encourages personal improvement, and provides meaningful experiences.
