I am not sure what your it the numbers of Freemasons [as in increasing]
If so,  the Lodges in my District are starting to turn in some very respectable numbers.
One Lodge did 18 EA's this last year, another did 7 and my home Lodge did 3.
I do believe that Masonry is starting to turn around, albeit slowly.  We probably will never see numbers like there were in the 40' s and 50's  [perhaps not in our livetimes] but things are turning around.]
Increasingly people are asking me how they can get involved in helping those in need, how can I help?
The times they are a changin'

Awesome!  I was thinking more along the lines of symbolic meaning of numbers, but increasing membership is prob a topic of more general interest :)

Our Lodge is growing, too.  Two of us passed into FC last week, and we raised a new MM the week before that.  There have been several petitioners, too, and most of us are (relatively) young.  It's exciting!

Anyone else find their Districts growing?
