friendship. support. fraternity.
Freemasonry offers the world of today a basic ideal that has become too often forgotten in the rush of modern living: that each individual is important and that his personal welfare counts. It lets men associate with other men of honor and integrity who believe that things like honesty, compassion, love, trust, and the pursuit of knowledge are important. Men who genuinely believe that both individually and collectively, they can contribute to positive changes in their homes, their communities, their countries and the world.
In many ways, Freemasonry is a support group for men who are trying to make the right decisions; brothers by common moral purpose. Brothers by choice.
WORSHIPFUL MASTER FOR 2019
My primary reason for joining the craft is twofold. One I wanted to honor the legacy of my father and grandfather who were both Masons by becoming a more complete man.
Secondly it was for the social, intellectual and spiritual growth I hoped to find with likeminded individuals in a variety of settings that would challenge me to broaden my thinking.
And boy, did it ever . . .
SENIOR WARDEN FOR 2019
Freemasonry started as a link to the history of my family, and a way to retrace the footsteps of my grandfather. Since becoming a mason, I have learned that freemasonry is much more than what you might read online and see in movies. Freemasonry to me is fellowship, friendship, and and true brotherly love. It is a chance to expand your family exponentially, yet know that you can rely on them no matter what happens. Freemasonry is a part of my life - the best part, my family.
JUNIOR WARDEN FOR 2019
I was born and raised in Edmonton Alberta, and have been involved in the masonic family for many years. My grandfather was a member of the craft in Edmonton.
I was involved in DeMolay, where I was Master Councilor of Edmonton Chapter, Provincial Master Councilor in 2007. In my spare time I enjoy golfing and skiing, watching all types of sports and spending time with my lovely wife and daughter.
SECRETARY / TREASURER
I was initiated into the Fraternity only 6 days after my 21st birthday in 1981; I was a 'generational' Mason and followed in my father's steps to the Door of the Craft.
I came to the door because of the respect I hold for everything my father taughts and continues to teach in the way he lives, but I stayed because of what I found along the way. Good men, brethren all, and the chance to make a positive change in the world - one brother at a time.
HIS THOUGHTS WHEN HE WAS
RAISED A MASTER MASON
I joined the Masonic fraternity, at that time in my life I was looking for something. I found it in the craft.
I will never forget the night I received my Master Mason degree. That night was the best I have ever had and one I will long remember. The reason I became a free mason was to be around men that are like minded. From the moment I arrived at the door for my initiation into the fraterninity, I have been welcomed as a brother.
THE COMPANY OF GOOD MEN WHO HAVE WALKED TOGETHER THROUGH HISTORY . . .
Becoming a Freemason gives an opportunity to join with other like-minded people who have positively impacted their own lives, their communities the world they live in and most importantly, the one they leave to future generations still to follow.
Brotherly love that sees no division between men, Relief that extends it's hand to wherever it is needed, and Truth wiping away darkness and fear.
Real men, Brothers true.
