The Illinois Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association is open to all Free Masons under the jurisdiction of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge Of Ancient Free & Accepted Masons of the State of Illinois who enjoy the sport of motorcycling and have a desire to ride with and associate with their fraternal brothers. We currently have 26 chapters in the state.
Our goal is to:
1. Contribute to the relief of Widows & Orphans of Master Masons
2. Raise Masonic Awareness in the world of motorcycling
3. Introduce the sport of motorcycling to our Masonic Brothers.
Each Widows Sons chapter sponsors or participates in local charity runs or events. In all cases, we strive to present a positive image of Freemasonry and our Association to the public.
While we wear identifying regalia, the Widows Sons are not a gang, MC or a 1% Club. We are required to represent the fraternity in a positive light at all times. The Widows Sons serve as a Masonic Booster Club by helping to raise Masonic Awareness while we attend public motorcycling events, and by supporting our regular Lodges in whatever capacity we are able.
Widows Sons chapters have helped to increase Masonic membership through our presence and visibility during public motorcycle events and rally's.
In every location where we have a chapter, the Widows Sons have proven themselves to be a positive asset to the fraternity. We regularly attract new members to the fraternity. Each Widows Sons chapter is encouraged to sponsor or participate in local charity runs or events. In all cases, we strive to present a positive image of Freemasonry and our Association to the public..
As Masonic motorcycle enthusiasts, we strive to make good men and bikers into even better individuals.
Out of 26 chapters in the State of Illinois Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association proudly support their Blue Lodge's & all appendant bodies.
The Illinois Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association has proven , and will continue to prove that we are the mortar that holds our blue houses together!
