Default Any Masons out there

I have been interested for a while and now that I have time I am thinking about talking to a neighbor about joining them. I do know they do a lot in the community to help and I figure I will be able to meet some good people in the process. Is there any info you can give me?

My step father and brother are. I think the only info to give is to talk to your neighbor. It's pretty secret stuff. All I know is that you have to ask to join.

My brother in-law is a Mason. I know he asked to join. I'd have to agree just talk to your neighbor and go from there.

They don't acept people who don't like loud music. So I think you're out.

I keed! I keed!

My grandfather was a Mason, but back in Nebraska. I never really heard much about it.

To become one, simply ask one... You can research and read and think you know what it is, but the experience is indescribable...

Do not be afraid, nothing will happen that none of the rest of us have not gone through....
