2B1 ASK1

2b1 ask1

Several years ago, “2B1ASK1” became a popular slogan and has appeared on many Masonic-related documents and even as “bumper stickers” on the automobiles of many members of the Fraternity. It refers to the fact that, in most Masonic Jurisdictions, (and California in particular), in order to become a Mason you must first ask someone who is already a member of the Fraternity to become one. (He cannot ask you to join)…
Thus the phrase: 2B1ASK1 – To be one, ask one.
