Jimmy C BS: joining the masons (126* d) RE: BS: joining the masons 09 Feb 06

I am not a mason, and I know very little about them except they do a lot of charity work for the needy. I have some friends who are masons and they all appear to be involved in a lot of community events all with a selected cgharity in mind, whether it be The Childrens' Hospital, Cancer Centres, Arthritis society etc. There may be some secrets involved at their meetings but I imagine it is nothing too significant or evil.
I am however a member of the Knights of Columbus and was very surprised at Joe's remarks about being thrown out of a meeting. I have never heard of this happening anywhere before this, in fact we have had guest speakers at our meetings and they do not have to be members. They are invited in when the meeting has started and they are given a time-frame to say their piece, then they leave,and the meeting continues. So Joe , please accept my apologies because it should not have happened.

BTW, there are a few chemotherapy stations and a beautiful glass stained window in the onconoly department of our local hospital, all bought and paid for as a joint venture between the Knights and the Masons. One of our previous mayors was a mason and always attended any function of the knights, especially the St. Patricks's Night concert. I had the pleasure of accompanying him when he got up to sing. All done in an atmosphere of friendship and a dedication to charitable works, so do not believe everything you read and or hear. There is a lot of behind the scenes charitable work that is not made public or even reported, all thanks to the Knights and/or the Masons.
