Ancient Accepted





To inspire our members by emphasizing our Core Values:

Reverence for God ~ Devotion to Country ~ Integrity ~ Justice ~ Toleration ~ Service

Ensure that activities are convenient. Provide enjoyable programs and fraternal fellowship.

To provide Master Masons with the education, tools, and support to help them enrich their lives, families, and communities. This is encouraged by teaching and practicing the principles of Faith, Hope, Charity, Friendship, Morality, Brotherly Love, Truth, and Honor. By trying to live to higher standards of moral and ethical conduct, we labor to improve ourselves to better serve the Brotherhood of Man.

"In this world, men know Masonry only through the lives of individual Masons, so may we ever live, act, and speak in such a way ...that all men may know the high ideals for which we stand."


“We will strive to be a fraternity that fulfills our Masonic obligation to care for our members”
