I'm sorry that I missed this post earlier.  The masons are one of the largest and oldest fraternal organizations in the world.  The oldest masonic lodge on this side of the Atlantic Ocean is in Boston, Massachusetts.

My father was a Past Master of Montgomery Lodge in Milford, Massachusetts.  The masons are more a fraternal order with secrets than they are a secret order.  

I am the Secretary of my local Order of the Eastern Star - the organization sponsored by the masons (for both women AND men, btw).  Both organizations maintain simple rituals that comprise their meetings, but there is nothing included that anyone should wonder about.  Both are committed to brotherhood/sisterhood, belief in a higher being, and community benevolence.  Our Good Will Chapter will be celebrating its 100th birthday in about six months, while we coincidentally number approximately 100 strong.  Marine Lodge, our masonic counterpart, has about 400 local members.  Not bad for a small Cape Cod town, eh?

Any more questions?  Lay'm on me..

Hey Nan, long time, and I hope all is well in your neck of the woods....

are the Free Masons an extension of the Knights of Templar or King Arthur or both?
