What's new?

The links section grew at a phenomenal rate since our last newsletter.  We would like to give a big "THANK YOU" to the Brother(s), Sister(s) who donated the time and effort to place the links in the links section.

Last month we doubled our newsletter membership.  Welcome to all the new Brothers/Sisters.  Our newsletter is sent out once a month, and includes Masonic education for the craft.  If you have an article you would like to submit or want to ask other information, please drop us a line at the contacts page (  Let us know what kind of information you would like to see on the website.

Freemasonry in the News:


Masonic Education!


Jubal sang of the wrath of God
And the curse of thistle and thorn,
But Tubal got him a pointed rod
And scrambled the earth for corn.
Old - old as that early mould,
Young as the sprouting grain-
Yearly green is the strife between
Jubal and Tubal Cain!
Jubal sang of the new found sea,
And the love that its waves divide:
But Tubal hollowed a fallen tree
And passed to the farther side.
Black - black as the hurricane wrack,
Salt as the under main 
Bitter and cold is the hate they hold -
Jubal and Tubal Cain!
Jubal sang of the golden years,
When wars and wounds shall cease;
But Tubal fashioned the hand-flung spears
And showed his neighbors peace.
New - new as the nine-point-two,
Older than Lamech's slain 
Roaring and loud is the feud avowed, 'twixt
Jubal and Tubal Cain!
Jubal sang of the cliffs that bar
And the peaks that none may crown
But Tubal clambered by jut and scar,
And there he builded a town.
High - high as the snowsheds lie,
Low as the culverts drain 
Wherever they be, they can never agree-
Jubal and Tubal Cain!
