Our Mission

     Freemasonry sets out, "To make good men better."  That is, to make a man better than his present self, not better than others per se. This mission extends to build stronger families and communities through Masonic self discovery, the search for Truth, mutual support and service.  We are involved in a variety of community events; from supporting the democratic process by volunteering to set up voting booths, to giving scholarships to academically gifted and deserving candidates, as well as ensuring the welfare of our brethren and their widows and orphans.       
                                                                                                                                                                                       

 

    

 

 

 

 

 

So, what does it mean to be a Mason?

     Being a Mason means undertaking the journey of a lifetime.  This journey spans antiquity to the modern day and reveals the measure of a man.  By long and toilsome work, you will find the best in yourself and others, and learn to develop those qualities in your community.  By dedicating yourself to a life of service to something greater than yourself, you can expect to reap all the benefits of a well lived life. Becoming a Mason is an undertaking unlike any other, filled with mystery, camaraderie, and the joy only the oldest fraternity in the world can bring.  By clicking on the link below, you can hear what Benjamin Franklin had to say about it: 

 

                             

 

Who are the guys in the funny hats?

     Pictured below is a comprehensive map of all the degrees one can freely petition to receive without invitation or honorary prerequisite.   All degrees of Masonry flow from the first steps, the Blue Lodge, which Summit Lodge #213 is proud to serve.  For new and old Masons alike, the diagram below is a helpful guide to potential progress through Masonry.  More information about both the York and Scottish Rites is on our page:
