NORWALK, Conn. -- The Old Well-St. John's No. 6 Masonic Lodge of Norwalk recently elected new officers.
"At its heart, Freemasonry is a self-improvement organization," said historian Mark Walker-Tyler. "Through three initiation rituals, lectures and other ceremonies, combined with social and charitable activities, Freemasons seek to improve themselves as they improve the communities in which they live. To join, one must believe in a Supreme Being, be upright, moral and honest in character, and be recommended by a Mason."
The Old Well-St John's No. 6 Masonic Lodge of Norwalk traces its origin back to 1765 when it was chartered by the New York Grand Masonic Lodge, Walker-Tyler said.
