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
