Grand Master's Message - Alexander F. Straatmann

Grand Master

M.W. Alex F. Straatmann was installed as the 156th Grand Master of Masons of Nebraska on Saturday, February 5, 2022.

Greetings from the East! It is my honor and privilege to serve as the 156th Grand Master of the Freemasons of Nebraska. Freemasonry as it exists today began in England in 1717 but traces its’ origins to the builders of King Solomon’s temple. The entire foundation of the United States was laid by Freemasons such as George Washington and Benjamin Franklin. For over 165 years, Masons have been active in Nebraska and its’ communities. We have a great history and should be proud of our history. While we should be proud of our history, we must continue to focus on our present and be relevant in our communities to ensure we have a bright future.
