Freemasonry as a Social Organization PDF Print E-mail
Written by Rodney Dawson   

Our meetings provide an opportunity to enjoy the fellowship of like-minded friends, as nearly all our gatherings are followed by refreshments and socializing. Many lodges have meals before their meetings and use this as an opportunity to socialize, often with their wives and families.

Other social activities of the fraternity are extensive and varied, as each lodge plans events based upon members’ interests. For example, Golden Gate #245 holds potluck dinners, picnics and holiday gatherings. We attend community events, play games, dine, and sponsor charity fundraisers together. There are Masonic motorcycle-riding events, shooting clubs, exercise and fitness groups, and much more. Masons are welcome to attend meetings and events at other lodges, not just their own. Since there are Masonic activities going on almost every day of the year, the possibilities for meaningful interaction are immense.


Golden Gate #245 is a chartered lodge of The Grand Lodge of Ohio, Free and Accepted Masons, sharing its historic building in Chagrin Falls with other Masonic bodies including; Solon Lodge #757 F.&A.M., Chagrin Falls Chapter #152 Royal Arch Masons, Golden Rule #442 Order of the Eastern Star, Oriental Commandery #12 Knights Templar, and Windermere Council #113 Royal & Select Masons.
