Education Officer Ron West used a program by Brother Alexander McNabb from the Grand Lodge of Virginia Committee on Masonic Education entitled “General George Douglas McArthur — the Man, the Freemason, the American Hero.” Included was how he started his Masonic career while serving in the military in the Philippines, his leadership during and immediately after WW II in the Asian theatre, his relationship with Major — and Brother — Henry Claussen who went on to become the Sovereign Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite, and his on and off relationship with President (and Brother) Harry Truman.

 

How Do I Join?

Freemasonry is available to men of good character who believe in a Supreme Being. We are closed to avowed atheists and agnostics. There are no restrictions relating to race, creed, or religion.

To begin, contact a Mason by telephone, by e-mail, or in person. He will be happy to answer your questions, or refer you to someone who can.

If you decide that Masonry is right for you, the next step is to request a Petition for Degrees of Masonry, which will ask for some basic information, such as your name, age, occupation, and place of residence.

Your sponsor will present your petition to the Lodge, which will consider your request. When your petition is accepted, you will face a three-step initiation. Each step opens doors to new knowledge and deeper understanding.

These initiation rites are solemn and wholesome, intended to convey basic moral truths and principles of morality that are accepted by good men everywhere: the Golden Rule, tolerance, gratitude to the Almighty for His many blessings, love of and respect for one’s family, charity towards all men, and patriotism. Upon taking part in the the first step, called the Entered Apprentice degree, you will advance to the second degree, known as the Fellowcraft, and, ultimately, raised to the Master Mason degree.
