How to Join

We’ll be happy to discuss it with you. First and foremost, you must ask.

Masons do not solicit members and you will never be recruited.  To become a Mason it must be of your own free will and accord and you must seek it out.  The basic requirements are simple:

You must be a man at least 18 years of age and of sound moral character.

You must profess a belief in a living God.

You must apply.

You must pay the initiation fees, currently $200.

You must be elected to receive membership by the other members.


For your application to be received you must have 2 Masons in good standing, one of whom is a member of Oriental Lodge #87 who have known you for at least 6 months and who are willing to vouch for your character.  If you don’t know any of us yet, we can help. We regularly have activities and dinners that are open to visitors and guests for exactly this reason. Come down, ask whatever questions you have, allow us to ask a few of you and see if you can make some friends.  6 months pass faster than you think.
