Have you ever considered becoming a Mason? We'd like a chance to talk with you.

Freemasonry offers much to its members - the opportunity to grow, the chance to make a difference, to build a better world for our children. It offers a chance to be with and work with men who have the same values and ideals.


Inform a Mason that you are interested

Freemasonry doesn't solicit membership, in fact it is forbidden. An additional requirement of petitioning for membership is that you be recommended by two Master Masons. You probably know several Masons. Perhaps you've seen the Square and Compasses like the one on this page or on a ring, pin, tie tack, or bumper sticker.  If you don't know a Freemason to talk to about petitioning for membership, please contact the lodge via email, and brothers will be glad to meet up with you. It's easy to find out more. 

Start the process by completing a petition (application) for membership, which you can obtain from the lodge secretary, download below, or get from a Mason you know. If you don’t know a Mason, just stop by the Lodge building at 216 E. Main St. in West Farmington about 30 minutes before our regular meetings (1st & 3rd Fridays at 7:30), the Brothers will be happy to meet with you for a short informational session.

The next step is to submit your petition to the Lodge. The petition is read in a Lodge meeting and referred to a committee. This committee then interviews you, usually right in your home, so that your family can ask any questions that they may have.

After the interview, the committee reports its findings to the Lodge, and a secret ballot is taken. If the vote is favorable, you’ll be notified by mail and you’ll be given a date to start the degree program.
