Who are the Freemasons?

Saturday, April 11, 2015 - 9:00am to 3:00pm

WEBSTER - Webster Lodge AF&AM, 27 Brandes St., will open their doors to the public on Saturday, April 11th, from 9 am until 3 pm. If you’ve ever wondered who the Freemasons are, whether they are the descendants of the Knights Templars, or what the inside of our buildings look like, here’s your chance to find out!  Members will provide tours of our building, talk about Freemasonry’s history, discuss its rituals, signs, and symbols, and explain what we do.

The Open House is a great opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about Freemasonry to meet and talk with Masons in the community.  Although many have heard of us, very few are aware that for over 281 years we have been part of an unbroken tradition of great men who have changed our world in a number of ways. Men like Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Thurgood Marshall, and John Glenn all joined the Masons prior to achieving the greatness we recognize them for.  Today, there are countless others that have made their families, workplaces, and communities better because they are Masons. I warmly invite the public to join us on April 11th.  We will be serving a free breakfast and lunch.
