Chartered may 10th, 1892, Brunswick, maryland

Freemasons are responsible citizens who are taught to conform to the moral laws of the government under which we live.  They are men of charity and good works.  They remain unchallenged as “the world’s greatest philanthropy!”  The Freemasons of America contribute more than one and a half million dollars every day to charitable causes which they, alone, have established.  These services to mankind represent an unparalleled example of humanitarianism.

Many of our nation’s early patriots were Freemasons, as well as thirteen signers of the Constitution and fourteen Presidents of the United States, beginning with George Washington.  Today there are more than four million Freemasons around the world come from virtually every occupation and profession.  Within the Fraternity, however, they all meet as equals.  They come from diverse political and religious ideologies, but they meet as friends and believe in one God.

2B1ASK1.  In other words, anyone seeking membership in Freemasonry must ask a Masonic friend to recommend him.  He must sign a Petition, stating his age, occupation and place of residence.  Members of the Lodge vote by secret ballot.  To be accepted the ballot must be unanimous.   If you are interested in petitioning the Brunswick lodge, please Contact Us.
