Freemasonry it is known as the most important not-so-secret society in the world, ever since the medieval times. Throughout the centuries it consisted of the most powerful and influential people of the world, including presidents, kings, statesmen, policymakers, economists, scientists, writers, or other important public persons. However, it was not until the end of the 20th century that masonry became the most controversial subject in the world, being the preferred theme for dozens of novels, books, and even movies.
If you are too drawn by the fascinating world of Freemasonry, find out that the Freemasonry Lodges of Essex still welcome new members regularly. The 4541 lodge was incepted in the 1920, and, around one century later of existence, it mainly dedicated its work to charitable events, and supporting the less fortunate. Thus, if you too want to become a member of this lodge, you will have to strongly believe in the power of doing good to those less fortunate than yourself, and undergo certain charitable events throughout the year. Apart from an annual fee of around 260 pounds which included four meetings over wine and dine with your fellows, the Essex Lodge runs a series of other charitable events throughout the year. In fact, the Master of the lodge for the years 2013-2014, Paul Woodward, has recently returned from a journey to the Great Wall of China. He completed a walk to this great worldwide Wonder, raising a wonderful sum of over 3,000 pounds for the Saint Clares Hospice in Harlow.
