Special Interest Groups - What are your hobbies and interests outside of the Craft?

  • Bro. Michael Maher, Member of the Board of General Purposes

We have all met Brethren who share similar interests or hobbies to us. It might be that they are ex-servicemen, caravanning grey nomads who head north during our winter, madly love Hawthorn Football Club, or are interested in one of dozens of other subjects or hobbies that you are also involved in.

The challenge is connecting with them at a later date. We go home and take off the dinner suit and realise that we don’t have contact details for them, or we might only know their first name.

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) is an initiative to connect Freemasons with similar hobbies so that they can meet up outside of the Lodge room. It might be sitting together at the footy, building model trains or even entering as a team in a sports competition. The key is creating opportunities for us to grow our friendships with other Freemasons.

To start connecting Freemasons with other Freemasons, we need to understand what these interests and hobbies are. To do this we have created a questionnaire that we would like you to complete.

Please click on the link below and record your interests and hobbies on the form. If you want to get a head start on the whole SIG thing, feel free to include your name and email where requested in the questionnaire as well, however this is not compulsory. The most important part is that we hear back from you about your interests and hobbies.
