Celebrating Scottish Rite Legacies


The legacy of Freemasonry is built on stories of generations. Brothers have carried on the core values of our Fraternity to spread our mission of building men of character for centuries.

The legacy of Scottish Rite Freemasonry creates a special bond with our Brothers, and with the long line of Scottish Rite Masons who have come before us. This Fall, we are honoring and celebrating the legacy that is the cornerstone of our fraternity. Read below to be inspired by the touching Masonic legacy of Brother Robert Moore, 32°

“It’s because of my father I am where I am in Freemasonry today.”

Hello, my name is Robert C. Moore.

In 1990 my father Robert C. Moore was the Worshipful Master of Union Lodge No. 291. He passed away unexpectedly in 2005 before I became a Mason.

In 2015 I had decided it was time to carry on his legacy! I joined Union Lodge No. 291 in 2015 and in my first five years in Freemasonry, I sat two years as Senior Deacon then ran for Junior Warden.

As fate would have it, I am now Master of our lodge - 30 years after my father. What an honor it is to be able to serve my lodge. I know he would be so proud.

Also within those five years, I became a 32nd degree Scottish Rite Mason. I joined the Knights Templar though the York Rite and became a member of the Irem Shriners.

It’s because of my father I am where I am in Freemasonry today. His legacy will live on for many years to come through myself and hopefully my son in a few years.
