"Making Good Men Better"
Because you'll learn to be a better man, a better husband, father, brother, worker, and friend. You'll meet men of a variety of ages, religions, ethnic and cultural backgrounds you might otherwise have never met.
Over the last four centuries, Freemasonry has flourished during times of great enlightenment and change. It is no coincidence that Freemasonry rose to prominence during the Age of Enlightenment in both Europe and America - where a new generation believed it could develop methods to foster personal improvement, bring order to society, and understand the whole universe. This sentiment is perhaps even stronger today than it was in the 18th century.
Today, men seek out Masonry for the same reasons - to better themselves and improve society in the company of like-minded Brothers. Like the building of any great structure, the powerful metaphors and symbols of Masonry are used to build character - one principle at a time.
Freemasonry has had a long and fascinating history, but at its core are men devoted to the ideals of learning, self-improvement, brotherly love and relief to those who most need it.
