About Freemasonry

Freemasonry is a fraternity or brotherhood - not a religious society - based on the belief that each person has a responsibility to help make the world a better place. 

Freemasonry encourages good men to become better men by promoting a life dedicated to high ideals, community service, and benevolence.  Masons believe in the importance of religion; men of all faiths and religious beliefs are members of the organization.  Freemasonry celebrates ethnic diversity and welcomes men of all racial backgrounds.  Membership in the fraternity is comprised of all nationalities and faiths. 

Masons are deeply involved in helping people.  Their compassion for others manifests itself in many ways, from housing neglected and abused children to helping seniors remain independent.  Masons contribute more than $1 million every day in the United States to aid individuals who are sick, aged, or destitute, or whose physical, emotional and psychological needs are not being met.  The vast majority of Masonic philanthropies assist people who are not Masons.


The Methow Valley Lodge #240 meets the 2nd Thursday in Twisp, Wa.
Lodge is dark June, July & August.
