What are the Freemasons?:
Freemasons have been involved in Monroe for over 30 years.
Freemasonry is the oldest, largest and most widely recognized
fraternal organization in the world. Thirteen signers of the
Constitution and fourteen Presidents of the United States,
including George Washington, were Freemasons. Today, there are
more than 2 million Freemasons in North America alone, 106,000
of which are Ohio Freemasons.
The Mission Statement of Ohio Freemasons is: “Freemasonry
provides opportunities for sincere, honest, forthright men who
believe in God and desire to contribute to the improvement of
their communities and themselves. Through our Masonic
Fraternalism, we reaffirm our dedication and unity to become
involved citizens who have a strong desire to preserve the
values that have made, and continue to make America great.”
Freemasonry is descended from lodges of stonemasons, who built
the castles and cathedrals of the middle ages. The tools and
objects used by stonemasons have been adapted as symbols in the
ritual and ceremonies of modern Freemasonry to teach moral
lessons. Known worldwide as a symbol of character, charity and
brotherly love, the Square and Compasses design is the emblem of
every Masonic lodge.
Today, Freemasonry is deeply involved with helping people.
Masonic related groups in the United States, including Lodges,
Shriners, Scottish and York Rite, Grotto and the Order of the
Eastern Star, contribute more than $2 million every day to
charity. Various college scholarships are also available. High
Point Masonic Lodge has made contributions of money and time to
local charities and organizations through the years. Freemasons
are men, age 19 and over, of good character who strive to
improve themselves and make the world a better place, and have a
belief in a Supreme Being. If an individual is interested in
becoming a member, he can begin by contacting a Lodge in his
area or speaking to a Freemason.
