    • – Bob Woodruff Park, North Pavilion.

Don’t forget:

  1. Thursdays, 5:30pm practice floor work or degree parts as needed. Just ask.
  2. Meditations

Also, Thursday August 9th, we will meet downstairs in the Museum at 5pm (or when you can get there). We plan to discuss the Museum & Library planning activities for the upcoming grant’s fiscal year. We have a lot of projects and activities to address and we could use volunteers to contribute in concept & execution to accomplish these goals we establish. We have some light refreshments (I’ll provide) until 6pm, when we’ll adjourn upstairs for our always-great dinner followed by our called meeting. Even if you just want to listen and see Masons in action (ahem), join us for some good conversation.

Thursday, August 30th will be a Masonic education night. There is some great material we have to go through on the things a (new) Mason should know.

See you Thursday,

Brian Chaput, JW

The Conference of the Middle Chamber is a great opportunity for Freemasons, young and old, to join
each other in exploring and unfolding the beauties of Masonic philosophy, history, and practice. Each conference hosts presentations, discussions, and panels selected from proposals submitted by Masons.

Topics for presentation and discussion will encompass anything with the exploration and progress of
Freemasonry at its heart, including other philosophies and practices that perhaps bear some relationship
to Freemasonry.
