33° Members in Dayton Lodge

The 33 Degree is an honorary degree, achieved by AASR members who have performed outstanding service, either in the community or to the Masonic Fraternity. Only those who have performed long selfless years of hard work are appointed to receive this high honor. Nevertheless, it is an honorary degree. The actual highest degree any man can attain in Freemasonry is that of Master Mason. It is symbolized by the “White hat” worn only at special events.
