Winchester's Gleason now Grand Master of Masons - Woburn Daily Times

Monday, February 06, 2017

Crocker Lawrence Library and the Grand Lodge Museum collection, both of which are open to the public.• Member of the Masonic Health System (MHS) Board of Directors. With corporate headquarters in Charlton, MA, MHS includes The Overlook Life Care Community, which features independent, enhanced, post-acute and skilled nursing; as well as the Overlook Visiting Nurses Association which serves greater than 1,800 people each day.Gleason found out he had been chosen as the next Grand Master in May. That gave him plenty of time to digest everything that was about to happen.“I felt excitement mixed with terror,” he said about taking over as the third highest ranking Grand Master in the world.When asked whether he’d want more time than the amount of years each Grand Master gets, Gleason said matter-of-factly that “three years is enough.”Although he’s clearly prepared for the job (he became a Freemason in 1971), there’s a lot of responsibility that goes along with being the highest ranking member of the organization. First, there’s the travel. Gleason said he won’t even be in Massachusetts next month. Second, he has about 160 positions to fill each year, from a Deputy Grand Master to Senior Wardens.Thankfully, the pay makes it all worth while.“I get between zero and zero dollars,” he joked, as the Freemasons are a volunteer organization.Although members can sign up as early as 18 (the logic being that men become adults at 18), most people who respond to the organization’s marketing are in their late 30s. Once you factor in the years it takes to reach the level of Grand Master, it’s no surprise that most, if not all, are at retirement age. Being the Grand Master is a major commitment.Some who join the Freemasons may dream of reaching the level that Gleason has achieved. But not the Winchester resident.“I never thought about being Grand Master,” he offered.Without even knowing it though, he began his path to Grand Master just hours into joining the organization. He said he was asked to become an inside sentinel, which is basically the first step (of many) in reaching the position of Grand Master.In fact, his journey to Grand Master actually began in church when he was approached by a relative of his wife to join the Freemasons. Back then you needed to be invited in. Now, you can ask to join. If you do ask, however, you will be investigated, as the organization seeks only good men.“We’re helping men become the best version of themselves,” Christopher Rooney, Communications and Development Associate Director (or as Gleason called him, “the man with all the facts”) said. “We always welcome people to consider joining.”The Freemasons is sort of like a fraternity, minus the hazing of course. The men all know each other, even if they’ve never actually met. Gleason said he could be walking down the street and see someone wearing a Freemason pin and know that must be a good person.“We’re a society with secrets, not a secret society,” he acknowledged.Besides the money there are other perks to being Grand Master. For instance. Gleason is the only member allow...
