GARY DRYFOOS' "...A PAGE ABOUT FREEMASONRY"

Since 1994, Wbro. Gary Dryfoos' website, "...A Page About Freemasonry" has been an outstanding source of reference material for new and seasoned Masons, as well as for the uninitiated. I owe Gary two notes of thanks. First, for providing a link to Laudable Pursuit and the Knights of the North website. And second for a most flattering review of Freemasons For Dummies.

"Those of you who have ever visited my website will know that I am a proponent of Masonic education. When we make a new Mason, we owe him a first-class course of instruction in what Masonry is, what it does, and where it came from. We owe it for his own sake, as our brother, for the sake of his circle of family and friends who will ask him about this peculiar organization he's joined, and for the sake of our own future. "Freemasons for Dummies" could serve as an important part of that education in any lodge."

"...Freemasons for Dummies belongs on every Masonic bookshelf. A few years ago, I attempted to compile my own list of books about Masonry for the general audience. The idea would have been to raise funds to donate a small "Masonic bookshelf" to local public libraries. I could never decide on that list, until now. If your lodge is looking for a way to inform your community about Freemasonry, consider donating a few copies of this book to your town library, and maybe even the public high school libraries."
