Shrine Chairmen Meeting - Wednesday, Apr 10, 2019

Thankfully, about the same time you are hankerin' for a cigar, the Chairmen like to meet up for our monthly board meeting. All are welcome. As usual, very important decisions will be made. Harumph.

Annual Communication, GL of MN - April 11-13, 2019

We're pleased to show our support for our Grand Master of Masons, Most Wor. Ed Halpaus, for "his" Annual Communication and the completion of his year as Grand Master.

SWC's elected officers are required to attend this annual program, and other members are encouraged to join for the business meetings, educational breakouts and festive dinners. Events will be held for the second time at the Masonic Heritage Center, at the south end of Normandale Blvd. in Bloomington, Minnesota. Hospitality suites will be open during the evening hours at the Bloomington DoubleTree Hotel (7800 Normandale Boulevard, Bloomington, MN). Business sessions will begin at 8AM on Friday with a formal dinner that evening, whilst installation of the new Grand Master is expected on Saturday at 1PM after the conclusion of that day's business.

More information will be posted here as details are finalized.

The Friday banquet is formal, and the business session standard dress is suit and tie, often dark suit. Past masters should bring their aprons and name badges are a good idea.

See the Grand Lodge website for details on the Grand Lodge's website.

If you wish, reserve your room at the hotel, under the Grand Lodge's special block price, using hotel code MSPBSDT and Group Code MMG.

 
Lynnhurst Turkey Dinner, Tues., Apr. 16, 2019

This has become a metro area tradition, with some 500 Masons gathering to hear the new Grand Master for his debut outing, often the first after his Installation. This year, tradition prevailing, RWB Steven Johnson will be elected Grand Master for the 2018-19 year. The event will be held in Eagan, at Osman Shrine's beautiful Lost Spur Golf Course, at 2750 Sibley Memorial Highway, Saint Paul, MN 55121, on Tuesday, April 16th. Join us! Happy hour starts at 5:00PM, while the dinner and speechmaking starts at 6:30. It's a rousing time. The food is fantastic: turkey carved tableside with all the fixin's. ~$33 per person (TBD), plus a buck for handling if you buy them online from our lodge's e-commerce site. Our lodge may buy a table.

Contact the Secretary to RSVP.

What could make these date change? As British Prime Minister, Harold Macmillan said, “Events, my boy, events!” We anticipate opportunities will come up, and will look to make the most of them. 
 
What to wear? Dress appropriate to the weather, certainly. A sportcoat for the winter, spring and fall meetings will mark you as a man of distinction and style. Wear a black suit for Grand Lodge, Emulation Degree performances or other big events. At the Royal Ascot, men and women dress “to the 9s,” as they say.
