Although not all members of the BAZ share a bloodline, we live in a fraternal environment of support and encouragement, becoming family to one another in unique and valuable ways. Not all members live on site at the BAZ but it is a central gathering place where we hold social activities and celebrate milestones together to encourage camaraderie and strengthen brotherly ties. We also encourage participation in athletic events and provide support for local teams and events through the foundation. Part of brotherhood is also making sure that each member is living a healthy and happy lifestyle. A fund is established to provide for the health care of members in case of an emergency with the understanding that the health of the BAZ depends on that of each individual.
