LINCOLN VALLEY LEADERSHIP
A Mason starts in a local Masonic lodge where through ritual, rich with the symbolism of ancient craftsmen, they learn the lessons of life. Starting as the rough ashlars (like a child) in the Entered Apprentice degree, a man with little Masonic knowledge moves through the Fellowcraft degree to the Master Mason degree. Many Master Masons join the Scottish Rite to continue the ritual, learning more lessons, smoothing the “stones” of life as we go, striving for the “perfect ashlars.” These lessons provide background in ethical and moral conduct as reinforcement. Scottish Rite Masons, with lessons in hand, become leaders within the Valley. Often these same men are also leaders at work, church and within community. Click in an Officer's photo to find out more.
