Who are Freemasons?
The Free & Accepted Masons are a fraternal organization, rich in history, of men working towards “making good men better”. We are involved in the betterment of one’s self and the giving to charity. We live our lives “upon the square”. Masons come from all walks of life. We are teachers, business people, doctors, lawyers, pharmacists, police, firemen, EMT’s, barbers and deli-men. Our common purpose is “making good men better”.
Masonry is everywhere…
You may have seen the signs of Masonry in your community, at the movies, historic buildings, or maybe know some Masons in history.
