There's a distinct difference between visiting a lodge and sitting in on a meeting. Most meetings are private. That's correct. There are some portions of some meetings that can be opened to the public, however. In recent memory we've opened outsiders to officer installations, award ceremonies and the presentation of scholarships that we give annually. And as far as I know, most lodges will let you visit the building before a meeting, even give you a tour of the lodge room if you'd like. But once the lodge is opened and tiled, non-Masons are not allowed to enter.

I smell something rotten in Denmark. As far as I know masons do not recruit. They do not even ask folks to visit their lodges. IN FACT you can not visit a lodge with out special permission or you are a mason.
I called my local lodge once. I asked if I could sit in a meeting. They said they could give me a video but that NO I could not sit in on a meeting.

I have kicked around the idea of joining the masons, for some reason I was/am under the impression that you must be 21 when you join, is this true?
You've got it all wrong. At least where I live, the bisexual swinger sex cult meets on WEDNESDAYs. My Masonic lodge meets on THURSDAYs. Completely different buildings, too. Not sure how you could confuse the two. But if you'd like to join either, I'd be happy to put in a good word for you.

In their sex cult.

are you sure your not a mason? You have a better grasp of the fraternity than quite a few brothers in my lodge. From the sound of it, you would make a great mason.

We all have ways of contributing to society and helping those whom we meet in our daily lives. For many, Freemasonry shows them the way in which they can better themselves and directly provide aid and assistance to those in need, and contribute to the greater good. For others, we can walk the same path without such a Compass as our Guide.

Where do I sign up?
And what are the costs?haha.
Don't you have to be a descendant, or something?
Or Like a birth right, or even a "position of authority"? So much I'd like to learn, but where do you learn it?
I know a 'mason' member. I'd ask him, if he wasn't such a goofball. He's the one the other masons probably make fun of when he isn't there. I know, I grew up with him, and everyone does it. haha.
