I enjoy the Blue Lodge, of course. I cannot participate as much as I would like, due to my work situation. You need to understand, that there are over 100 (one hundred) different organizations, that are concordant/appendant to Masonry.  When I lived in Columbus, Ohio, I was very active in the Shrine. I was in five different Shrine clubs, and president of one of them. The Shrine has all types of activities for the member, and his lady. We went to dances, covered-dish parties, etc. The Shrine is a very public organization, and the organization has parades, and shows,etc.  Of course, the Shrine hospital program is fantastic, I used to help transport children to the hospital, when I lived in Bowling Green, KY.

I like to think of Masonry, as a “cafeteria of organizations”, where an individual can pick and choose, which type of activity and club experience, appeals to him.
