Subject: Why I Joined Freemasonry
Good Day Brother;
Why I joined Freemasonry,
There is no one answer to this question. I myself joined for a
couple of reasons.
First my grandfather was a mason,I did not learn this until after his
death. In my young eyes at the time he was a great man. He worked hard
all his life but always had time for us when we came to visit and
instilled in our young minds the simple yet important values of life.
He taught us how to milk his jersey and then to make butter. He would
wait until after the first frost then lead us to the Bee tree in his
wood that only he knew the location. I could go on about him but I
The next reason I became a Mason was for the brotherhood.
I moved to Mass. 15 years ago and spent so much time working I had no
time for a social life. Now I find great comfort in the activities we
have at our lodge as many are ones that my children can enjoy also, and
may also teach them the meaning of charity. Thirdly but not lastly was
to join a brotherhood of good men. It is so hard to meet good men at
work or on the street. And I did meet good men, a passle of them. I am
proud to be among them.
I am almost 50 now and I wish I'd had known then what I know now. I
would have become a Mason 32 years ago.
