WHO ARE THE MASONS?

Masons in Olympia, Tumwater and Lacey congregate at Harmony Lodge #18, the friendliest Lodge in Thurston County, WA. Our Lodge includes a broad cross-section of the community and we welcome all men over the age of 18 who want to improve themselves by associating with like-minded peers. Our membership is distributed fairly evenly across age groups and by profession, although because of the proximity to Fort Lewis (JBLM), many of our members are active duty military or veterans.

The Masonic Fraternity is the oldest Fraternity in the world. The Masonic Family includes Masons as well as organizations for their ladies, couples, and youth.

The Masonic Family provides more than $2 million a day to charitable activities such as hospitals, youth scholarship, and those less fortunate than we.

To inquire about Masonry, contact our Secretary.

In addition to music, a delicious catered dinner by Pellegrino's Italian Kitchen, a silent auction and a dessert dash - We guarantee that you will have an outstanding time.

Harmony Lodge - Youth Night

Recently Harmony Lodge hosted our three youth groups DeMolay, Rainbow and Jobs Daughters with a pizza feed before their stated meeting.  This was followed by a presentation from each of the youth groups to the Lodge.  Thank you to all the adult leaders/mentors who give their time to support these future leaders.
