A group of men, all lodge members of a variety of lodges in Omaha, and all Shriners, thought it a good idea to form a lodge in Millard NE to serve those men in a rapidly growing part of the city.
After the grand Lodge process of forming the lodge. The first installation was in 1972 with Gene Tetrick as master, early membership was greatly enhanced by transfer and multiple members who wanted to be part of the growth of the Lodge system.
Tremendous growth through new raisings, more transfers through the 80s and 90s. We never stopped Late 90s and early 2000s, very slow period. Talk of closing or merger with another Lodge.
Early 2000's to current brought tremendous growth through raising of a group not seen greatly in Masonry at the time,- young men -20s and 30s. Again we never stopped. Currently vibrant Lodge with tremendous leadership, hardworking brethren, many new brethren, growing and hoping to continue that growth.
Freemasonry in Nebraska shall be a preeminent organization for men of quality, regardless of race, religion or creed, consistently delivering, by symbols, allegory and example, a moral code founded on the highest standards of ethics, honesty and strength of character, a fraternal organization committed to charity, true fellowship and brotherly love under the Fatherhood of God; and a relevant organization dedicated to delighting, involving and educating members and their families in the community, where the lodge is a vibrant, respected and contributing part of community life.

Freemasonry is a fraternity dedicated to positive growth in our communities and families, and the religious development of each member in his own beliefs. Masons assist the less fortunate as well as share fellowship with like-minded men from all walks of life. Freemasonry encourages its members to strive to become better men, husbands, fathers and employees and contemplate the ‘sublime mysteries’ in the world around them.
Masonry is the oldest and largest fraternal organization in the world, founded on values, which teaches trust in fellow man and helping those less fortunate. Its lessons of brotherly love, relief and truth are taught as allegories and meant for the improvement and education of our members.
Over the centuries, Masonic scholars have explored numerous theories of its origins. However, no one knows with certainty how Freemasonry began. We do know that Masonry is based on the Stonemason’s guilds formed in the middle ages to build castles, cathedrals and monasteries.
Freemasonry can be found in every free country in the world. Add an answer to this item.
The Masonic fraternity believes its members have an obligation to give back to their communities for the benefit of others. Nationwide, Masons give more than $2 million a day to charities. It is an important point to emphasize that Masons are taught to go about these tasks in a quiet, unassuming fashion. This is meant to impress upon our members that it is the work, and not the individual, that is of importance. It also preserves the dignity of the recipients. The philanthropic work of our Grand Lodge and its lodges include:
Local Masonic lodges not only support these charities, but also many community charitable efforts.d an answer to this item.
A degree is a level of membership; the Entered Apprentice, Fellow Craft or Master Mason. A degree also refers to a morality play or ceremony in which a man participates to achieve each stage of membership. Degrees teach lessons using a system of symbols and allegories. There is never any hazing or poor taste in the degrees.
Each degree uses symbols to teach lessons in life based on the architectural symbolism of the medieval Stonemasons who built castles, cathedrals and monasteries — the importance of honor and integrity, of being a person on whom others can rely, of being both trusting and trustworthy, of realizing that you have a spiritual nature as well as a physical or animal nature, of the importance of self-control, of knowing how to love and be loved, of knowing how to keep confidential what others tell you so that they can “open up” without fear.
