Michigan Masons, a fraternal organization that’s actively involved in community service, will hold day-long open houses on Oct. 17 for its various chapters across the state, including 121 lodges in metro Detroit.
“Masonry emphasizes fellowship, community engagement, and personal development, and helping one another, so we’re excited to show what we’re all about,” says Robert Conley, Michigan Masons Grand Lodge membership director.
During each open house, guests will get to take a lodge tour while Masons talk about how they work, special programs they offer, and local activities they’re involved with. Membership is open to men 19 years of age or older, and open to all faiths and cultures.
There are 1.2 million Masons worldwide, with more than 30,000 in Michigan. Last year the Michigan Masons and the Masonic Foundation of Michigan raised over $560,000 for cause-related programs.
