One of the things we do is volunteer as Officers of the Lodge. Being a Freemason is very rewarding, but, serving as an officer has unique rewards.
When you serve as an officer of a Lodge, you will learn many things including; leadership, organizational skills and public speaking. Many of our nation's leaders honed their craft by serving as officers of their Lodges. These men include George Washington, Ben Franklin, Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt, John Glenn, Gerald Ford and many others.
These are the Officers of Warren Lodge No. 310. Pictured in all their regalia are the Worshipful Master, Senior Warden, Junior Warden, Secretary, Treasurer, Chaplain, Senior Deacon, Junior Deacon, Senior Master of Ceremonies, Junior Master of Ceremonies, Pursuivant and Tyler.
The Worshipful Master is the leader of the local Lodge.
His position is comparable to the President of any club or organization, such as a Fire Company, Elks or Knights of Columbus.
The words Worshipful Master are originally from old England. The citizenry used to refer to any person of rank as "your Worshipfulness". It in no way indicates that he receives worship or adulation of any kind.
The word Master, is from the trades, for instance Master Plumber or Master Carpenter or of course Master Mason.
