Wheaton Lodge 269 was chartered in 1858, and is a diverse lodge, racially, ethnically, and in any other way the members of a fraternity can be diverse. The one thing we all have in common is Masonry.

Through Masonry, we learn to improve ourselves internally. External success is just a byproduct of internal character traits built with integrity, honesty, high moral standards, and a sincere wish of being serviceable to those around us. Through Masonry, we learn how to strengthen those traits.
The video to the right is an excellent description of what Masonry is about. We are all on a separate journey, and in the end, we won't be remembered for how much money we made, or how much power we had. We'll be remembered for who we were, for how we loved, and for the impact we made for those who needed our help.
The closing statement is one of the most powerful, and universally true statements ever spoken, and it's true for everyone, for Masons and non-Masons alike. The difference we offer as Masons, is a fraternity of millions of men who sincerely want to help you make that statement true for your own life.
True self-improvement can be written about in books, it can be understood through motivational speeches, and it can be practiced with the help of a life coach. However, to make the search for more light, for real self-improvement a part of who you are, and not just a subject that you're interested in, it requires more effort than you can provide by your own power.
Knowing what you should do, and being able to do it, are two different things. Having others who can help you do what you should do, to hold you accountable, and to be held accountable by you, is what this fraternity is all about.
