THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF
The Widows Sons was conceived of and founded by Brother Carl Davenport PM, in the year 1998. We are now the world’s largest and fastest growing Masonic Riders Association. The Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association is an International Association of motorcyclists which is open to all Master Masons who enjoy the sport of motorcycling and have a desire to ride and associate with their brothers in our fraternity.
Our goals are:
- To contribute to the relief of our Widows & Orphans
- To support our Blue Lodges through maintaining current membership, regular attendance, and assistance with lodge events.
- Introduce the sport of motorcycling to our Masonic Brothers
- Raise Masonic Awareness in the world of motorcycling
In every location where we have a chapter, the Widows Sons have proven themselves to be a positive asset to the fraternity. Our Oregon chapters are proud to have current and past Grand Masters as members. We regularly attract new members to the fraternity, and several of our chapters across the country have their own Degree Teams or members who volunteer in doing Masonic work whenever possible. Each Widows Sons chapter sponsors or participates in local charity runs and events. In all cases, we strive to present a positive image of Freemasonry and our Association to the public.
While we do wear identifying patches or regalia, the Widows Sons are in no way an Outlaw Club, MC, or 1% Club. We require our members to represent the fraternity of Freemasonry in a positive light and regard their obligations to Masonry foremost at all times. The Widows Sons of Oregon honorary or otherwise are all members of Oregon Blue Lodges under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Ancient Free & Accepted Masons of Oregon. In our capacity to Grand Lodge 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 Blue Lodges in whatever capacity we are able. Over the years Widows Sons chapters have helped to increase Masonic membership through our presence and visibility during public motorcycle events and rallies.
