About the Webinar:

Fraternal and Masonic organizations are groups of people bound together for social, religious, philosophical or philanthropic purposes. Along with the ideals of creating a family on a community level come a variety of group functions and purposes. Many fraternal societies formed as benefit groups that later evolved into mutual insurance companies. Early goals for other organizations were to provide social opportunities for rural citizens; to provide educational opportunities; or to assist one another within the community.
