  1. I was just wondering if any of you are Masons? I am twice Past Master of my Lodge and currently Senior Warden. I was also a committee chairman for the Grand Lodge of Arkansas for 9 years.

  7. If it was a secret, we wouldn't wear rings or have signs on our trucks or out in front of our Lodges. I'm proud to be a Mason, and don't mind telling it.:biggrin:

    My father in law is a Poopa in Little Rock somewhere. Just got inducted a couple weeks ago. My brother is also a mason but he's so busy at church I'm not sure if he still participates or not.

    The way I understood it it is a fraternity of men who are real good fellas. They try to help their communities and needy family's.

    I am.
    Twice Past Master of Beebe #145 and past secretary. Served 13 years as secretary. Perpetual Member & Certified lecturer. I haven't been able to attend for the past few years, but stay as loyal to the lodge as I am able.
    Total service to the lodge is 35 years.

    Regardless of all the conspiracy theories out there, we had nothing to do with all the dead blackbirds falling in the streets of our fair city.

  20. Ever heard about the Shriner's Hospitals? There is never a charge for hospital use. To be a Shriner you must be a Mason.
    To be a Mason you must believe in the Fatherhood of God, the Brotherhood of man, and the immortality of the soul.
    My Lodge has several fund raisers every year, and we present ALL the proceeds as sholarships to deserving students.
    At least 9 of the signers of the Constitution were Masons, and several Presidents too.

    PS- Arkansas Children's Hospital was originally formed by the Masons of Arkansas, and we still contribute funds to it.
