    Here in Massachusetts they are advertising on the radio all the time for new membership. I'm guessing that perhaps the younger generation isn't interested in joining so they are aggressively looking for new members. I had been under the impression for the longest time that you had to know somebody to become member. Now they advertise.
    The organization has always fascinated me but at my age I'm not going to go down to a Lodge on Feb. 12th and "learn more" as they advertise on the radio.

    My Dad and my favorite uncle were Masons and they wouldn't even show me their secret handshake!

    If you stop by the lodge hall in your town, they will tell you all you need to know before joining. The old saying in masonry is "2b1, ask1. Meaning, just ask someone that is a mason, in your town, and they should steer you to joining if you so wish. They don't solicit members, but they will help you if you ask. Basically, if is a lot like a brotherhood club. There are websites all over the net that will answer your questions. Most lodges do some kind of philanthropy work. The Shrine side of masonic bodies are just a fun group in masonry, that raise and contribute tons to children's hospitals nationwide.

    I would bet that your dad was hoping for the day that you would ask him about being a mason.
