Greetings from all the Masons in the Bluegrass State
Most Worshipful P. Todd Jones
Grand Master 2016-2017
The over 38,000 Masons of Kentucky welcome you to the Grand Lodge of Kentucky Free and Accepted Masons site.
Although Masonry has been in Kentucky over 200 years, this represents one of the few public appearances in any media other than individual stories about the many philanthropic endeavors of our Lodges and affiliated organizations. It is not that we want to be secretive, but our tradition is to not be flamboyant or advertise our good works. It is our hope that this site will serve to remove some of the shroud of mystery associated with Masonry. Any suggestions you have to make it more valuable will certainly be appreciated.
Are you interested in pursuing membership? The basic criteria for membership is:
• A belief in God
• Believe in the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of man
• Male and at least 18 years old
• Be a resident of Kentucky
• Be recommended by 2 members of the Lodge
• Receive a unanimous ballot for membership
There is one little known aspect of petitioning for membership of which you should be aware. You will not be asked to become a member. Masons in Kentucky do not solicit for membership, we wait for the man to ask for a petition.

NOTICE * NOTICE * NOTICE - Masonic Home Board Ballot - NOTICE * NOTICE * NOTICE
The ballots for the election of directors to the Board of the Masonic Homes of Kentucky have been mailed to all Lodges and individuals with life memberships. Please disregard these ballots. Due to a printer’s error, one of the nominees was left off the ballot. We are in the process of having the ballots reprinted and they will be mailed as soon as we receive them. The Board certified 8 nominees for the election. If your ballot only has 7 names on it, it is the wrong ballot. Be sure the ballot you cast has 8 names on it. The Homes are entering a very important era as we begin our next 150 years. It is vitally important that we elect the best candidates to the Board. They will be contemplating issues that our forefathers never imagined. As always, remember to vote for 5. No more, no less. Otherwise, your ballot will be declared spoilt and not counted. Please help me get this message to anyone and everyone concerned by reposting this to your district and Lodge pages. Thanks in advance.
Rick Nation, PGM, Secretary, MHKY BOD
