The Extended Masonic Family
A Mason can choose to broaden and deepen his experience of Masonry by participating in other branches of the Masonic family: the Scottish Rite, York Rite, Shriners, Rameses Shriners, Tecumseh Shrine Club and Knights Templar.
Masonry is for men… but it’s a family affair.
Women, girls and boys who share Masonic values are welcome to participate in the many social and charitable events hosted by lodges. But there are affiliate organizations for those looking for ways to become formally involved. Both men and women can join Order of the Eastern Star, young men can join DeMolay, and young women can join the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls and Job's Daughters International.
