“At the Threshold”

An afternoon of discussions and learning about the Lessons from Freemasonry

Masonic Historian, Lecturer, and Author

Salem, MA 01970


Did you ever wonder about the lessons that are taught behind the closed doors of a Masonic lodge? If you are a member and never joined a “higher” body of Freemasons, were you ever curious about what those who did found out? Come and discover for yourself and learn some of the things the following men might have been taught:
George, Frank, and Harry were brothers… and US Presidents
Norm, Buzz, and Louie are household names you’ll recognize
John, Leo, and Bill … a Grand Commander, KT and two Grand Masters

This is your chance to listen to and ask questions of one Freemason who actually:
1. Sold agricultural seeds on the road in Iowa
2. Made mattresses in a factory of a major manufacturer
3. Drove a limousine for movie stars
4. Sang professionally in a nightclub
5. Shared military secrets and briefed the Directors of the NSA, CIA, and White House
6. All the above.

Come and listen and ask questions of a Freemason who has been from Hawaii to Washington DC, Minnesota to Texas, California to England, Germany, Turkey, and Greece talking and teaching about the Craft.
