Looks just like the dozens of other Fraternal Lodges I've been in from Scottish Rite, Benevolent & Protective Order of the Elks, Odd Fellows, Order
of the Eagles, and even the Boy Scouts.
People who see Masonic or Secret Societies as manipulative, powerful, government toppling, havens of the rich aristocracy, have obviously been reading
too much fiction and haven't gotten out to meet and greet these groups for themselves.
The little known fact of the matter is that all of these Fraternal Organizations are on their death-beds and suffering from decades of neglect and
dwindling membership. Many of these groups have the largest percentage of their membership in their elder years, and have not been able to replace
dying members with new members for the last decade or two.
When you look at the reality of these Masonic and Secret Societies, they don't seem so spooky all of a sudden, do they?
