There are a lot of reasons to become a Mason. Every mason I know will give you a slightly different set of reasons, some are public and some are private. Like any good organization you get more out of it than you put into it. I know I have gotten far more out of Lodge than I put in.
I have to admit I travel a bit too much to be considered to have good attendance. I usually get to the September meeting, I try hard for the October meeting, and if I hit May and June’s it is more good luck than good management. So in my own opinion I’m one of the wallflowers. I don’t feel good offering to do something that I can’t devote the time to do it properly.
I became a mason for several reasons.
If you are uncomfortable with with me being a mason, I have to admit being happy with my company. Are you happy with yours?
You have to ask to be a mason to become one. If you are interested contact your local Lodge.
