Celebrating 283 years of Freemasonry in South Carolina - First South Carolina Lodge Chartered 1735
Freemasonry is the oldest fraternal organization in the world. It is dedicated to promoting improvement in the character of its members. A Mason is taught to be a good citizen, to be of good character, & to care for those less fortunate.
Freemasonry traces its roots to the Middle Ages. It is from associations of stone masons, who built the magnificent cathedrals, castles, and monasteries of Europe that the fraternity started. These groups, eventually, began to accept members who were not actual working masons.
They adopted the term "Accepted" Masons, and Freemasonry was born.

It is indeed a privilege and honor to be elected to represent you, the Craft, as your Grand Master. Many thanks are offered to the men who have served in this capacity before me and for the numerous positive things they have instituted during their tenure to make our Craft better than it was before they were installed. I would like to thank the men who are currently serving their Lodge, District, our Grand Line and the many Grand Lodge Committees. It is through their selfless efforts that we continue to be a beacon to our world.
