Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Al was raised as a Master Mason on January 30, 2006 at the Dayton Lodge #103 F&AM. It was a deeply moving and life changing experience, and I urge any man considering Freemasonry to give a look at the Indiana Freemason Online Page at http://www.indianafreemasons.com/ , or contact me for information if I can be of assistance. I believe that it is an endeavor worthy of your time and effort should you decide that Freemasonry interests you.
