The Greater Pittsburgh Masonic Center will hold an open house from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. tomorrow.
District Deputy Grandmaster Doug Heinz says the event will include tours of the center, an introductory video, and informational brochures. Representatives from the seven Masonic lodges that make up the Greater Pittsburgh Masonic Center will also be on hand to answer questions.
The Greater Pittsburgh Masonic Center accepts all males more than eighteen years old who believe in God.
Heinz says Freemasonry is difficult to explain briefly, but much of it is simply about meeting people.
“We have become such a networking society over the internet with various social networking sites,” says Heinz. “I kind of look at the Masonic Fraternity as an up-close and personal networking group, where you actually go and meet people and expand your network of friends and associates face-to-face.”
Heinz says there is plenty of interest about the charitable fraternity, but men often don’t know where to turn for information.
The Greater Pittsburgh Masonic Center is located at 3579 Masonic Way in Pittsburgh. Interested parties can call the center at (412)939-3579 for more information.
