We’ve been too quiet about our fraternity!
Every Brother needs to become a spokesman for Freemasonry. It’s important to talk with non-Masons about who we are and what we do.
Seventy-six percent of new Masons joined because it is tradition in their family, someone they respected was a Mason or their friends or co-workers are Masons. A Brother who knows of a man that he feels would make a good Mason should talk to him about our fraternity.
Help ensure the future of our great fraternity and your lodge…
