What you can expect from joining?
by: Associate Matron

What you can gain depends on how much you actively try to gain. Easter Star is a wonderful place to feel like you are part of a family. You can always find help, advice, friendship, etc.

Unfortunately, a lot of people use age as an excuse not to join or change. The lessons you learn in Star can help anyone of any age, in any circumstance, and every walk of life.

In way of what is discussed in meetings...it is just a meeting. Where you get the benefit is what you do for your brothers and sisters and also for anyone else that is ever in need. A meeting is just a meeting. But friendship and the blessing of helping others is what is important.

As for me, I am 22. I am now in one of the many leadership positions in my chapter. I have become much more confident in my ability to work with and for others. I think anybody can improve themselves through Eastern Star. They just have to apply themselves.

very nice people
by: S & I

I joined the star. I would be considered middle-aged but I still feel like I'm 17. The people I have met in the star are very kind and friendly. I haven't attended for the last few months though because I don't understand the point of the stories. Also, the meetings take forever and I find it difficult to pay attention to it for long periods. I believe I would hurt the feelings of all those kind people if I asked about the real meaning of the stories. Oh and I am really disappointed that my husband became a mason because that group does not allow women to join and I feel that by attending, he supports gender discrimination. So, right now I am boycotting all masonic groups and any of his masonic functions that include wives/partners/girlfriends.

I got the opportunity to meet many very kind people by joining the star.

Eastern Star
by: Anonymous

I wanted to become Mason myself but soon found out that women couldn't be one but they had Eastern Star but then I found out that to become Eastern Star, you have to be Mason wife, or family member. Can someone please guide me correctly and in fact let me know how to go about this? Cpulgarin4@gmail.com

Brief guide to joining the Masons. NEW
by: Dinguss Paynuss

The point of joining is usualy because you want to. Either a parent or grandparent was a member. It's like carrying on tradition. You don't want to see it die since it provided someone you knew with another way to measure your faith and actions.

I thought having Jesus tattooed on my neck would keep me out. It didn't. So men, when you join you will be Entered Apprentice (1st degree), Fellowcraft (2nd degree). When you are given your 3rd degree and only then will you be a Master Mason. Keep in mind there may be some things you will have to commit to memory in order to advance through these degrees. This is called a Catechism. There are subtle difference between Free and Accepted Masons and Ancient, Free and Accepted. You are learning and remembering the standard Masonic initiation protocol.

The learning the point behind the stories is basically what it's all about. You get to look and learn the more you see things and hear them.

Now you are a Master Mason. You can help people join Masonic bodies and travel to other lodges plus meet tons of people.
