Annual Communication, GL of MN - April 13-14, 2018

We're pleased to show our support for our Grand Master of Masons, Most Wor. John Studell, 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 first time at the Masonic Heritage Center, in Bloomington, Minnesota. Hospitality suites will be open during the evening hours at the Marriott Airport Hotel (2020 American Blvd E, 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 at http://www.mn-masons.org/.

If you wish, reserve your room at the hotel, under the Grand Lodge's special block price.

 
Lynnhurst Turkey Dinner, Tues., Apr. 17, 2018

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, MWB Ed Halpaus will be elected Grand Master for the 2017-18 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 17th. 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. ~$30 per person (TBD), plus a buck for handling if you buy them online from our lodge's e-commerce site.
