Nearly 31,000 members of the Masons fraternal organization are holding a day-long open house in October for persons interested in the historic men’s brotherhood.
“Masons throughout Michigan are looking forward to welcoming guests into their many lodges to explain how Masonry has been impactful to them,” says Robert Conley, Michigan Masons – Grand Lodge membership director. “Masonry emphasizes fellowship, community engagement, and personal development and helping one another, so we’re excited to show what we’re all about.’”
Open House activities will vary depending on the lodge. Generally, guests will experience a lodge tour while Masons talk about how they work, special programs they offer, and local activities they’re involved with. Guests are invited to have casual conversation and ask questions over light snacks and beverages that will also be provided.
Michigan Masons are actively involved in communities statewide while supporting a range of positive nonprofit causes (such as the Michigan Child ID Program). Last year alone Michigan Masons and the Masonic Foundation of Michigan raised over $560,000 for cause-related programs.
