How to Kill Your Lodge

How to Kill Your Lodge
  • Don’t come.
  • When you do come, come late.
  • Never accept an office. It is better to stay out-side and criticize.
  • The officers asked for the job, let them do all the work.
  • Never pay your dues in advance. Wait until you get your moneys worth and then wait a while longer.
  • It is good to tell your officers failings to visitors, they might be a long time finding them out.
  • If there are a few zealous workers in the Lodge inform everyone the Lodge is run by a clique.
  • Disagree with established rules and regulations, let people know you have a mind of your own.
  • Keep talking to the brother next to you in open Lodge, it makes for good fellowship.
  • If one brother has said or done something you don’t like, be mad at the whole Lodge.

Masonry seeks to "make good men better." Carmel Masonic Lodge #421 is an excellent representation of what Masonry is all about. If you are interested in joining the Masons, you should ask a Mason about becoming a Mason. Potential members are... required to be male, at least 18 years of age, hold a belief in God, are of good moral character, and have resided in Indiana for at least 6 months. Check? Then you petition (via a member) and then can discover all the "secrets" of Masonry, make a ton of new friends, have a lot of fun, and do some good works for your fraternal brothers and the community!read more
