All sorts of men are members of Freemasons’ lodges, or are in someway associated with them. Freemasons are taught to have the understanding, the attitudes, and the behaviour which make civilized life possible. This morality is not peculiar to Freemasonry, but the method of getting the message across is very much Freemasonry’s own. As a consequence, for over 250 years, Freemasonry in the Eastern Caribbean has contributed greatly to the social, political, and economic development of the area, and I know it will continue to do so in the future.
