Plumb Bob Logo

While this is not an official Masonic Web site we have decided to adopt the plum bob as our corporate logo as in Masonic terms this represents justness and uprightness of life and actions.

We feel, and intend, this site to be just that in addressing the concerns and explaining Freemasonry.
