San Dimas Lodge No. 428

Making true friends,
improving ourselves, having an impact

What is Masonry?

Masonry is the world’s first and largest fraternal organization.  It is guided by the enduring belief that each man has a responsibility to make the world a better place.  For 300 years, Freemasonry has enhanced and strengthened the character of individual men by providing opportunities for fellowship, charity, and the search for truth – within ourselves and the larger world.

 

Our Mission and Our Lodge

San Dimas Masonic Lodge #428
San Dimas Masonic Lodge exists to develop and uphold the principal tenets of Freemasonry: Brotherly Love, Relief, & Truth.  We are a brotherhood of men from all backgrounds who place a high value in supporting our community.  We hold in high regard the ancient ceremonies and degrees of Freemasonry passed down through the generations, and preserve them for future generations to come.
San Dimas Masonic Lodge No. 428 was established in 1911 by 20 local Masons who met at the Foresmans & Hoke Hall, developing over the last 100+ years into a strong brotherhood of currently over 100 San Dimas Freemasons.
