Mystic Tie Lodge #237 is a Regular and Recognized masonic lodge located in Marion, NC,
having a charter through the
Grand Lodge of NC, AF&AM
, which is recognized by the United Grand Lodge of England.
The initial reason for MSA's formation was so U.S. Freemasonry could provide aide to our military servicemen
near the end of World War I. The War Department (now Defense Department)
refused to work with 49 (at that time) different Grand Lodges,
but the government department agreed to work with just one agency.
So Grand Masters gathered in Cedar Rapids in
1918 to discuss and formulate the concept of MSA, and again in 1919
to formally give birth to the new organization. MSA's goal from the
start was to provide services to the Grand Lodges that they could not perform as easily individually.
MSA was given the charge to provide services to our military,
create informational and educational materials,
and to issue disaster relief appeals and distribute funds collected for that purpose.
