Your parents were in Masonry, your grandparents and some of your relatives as well. Now you are thinking about joining, because Uncle Buck and Aunt Susie told you how much fun and respect you would gain being a part of the Lodge. It is a unique situation; exclusive opportunity and not just anybody can join. Quite naturally, they would be willing to put in a good word for you, because they would like to keep it in the family. Before you make that decision, heed to what I am about to explain to you about the Masons and Eastern Stars. First and foremost, remember the two key elements before participating in any activity you may be uncertain of. Remember to do your research and test the spirits by the Spirit. Ask questions; get more information about the history, the members’ background, and etc. If they refuse to comply, then back away and run.
