The Master is the "Rule and Guide" of a Masonic Lodge and becoming Master of one's Lodge is not only an important reponsibility but an honor. The Brothers of the Lodge elect the Worshipful Master based on their confidence in his experience, wisdom and leadership skills.
Masters generally govern their lodges for one year. The men who have garnered the jewel of the square are in great company, as many famous Americans bore this title; George Washington and Harry S. Truman to name a few.
These are the men who proudly served their lodge as Worshipful Master and here we pay them the respect they so rightly deserve.
