Most meetings are the Third Friday of each month, 6PM social hour, 7PM gavel, dinner by 8:30PM. We'll have events all 12 months of the year, almost always "Stated" (~for business) and at least one will be at a lodge hall (Annual Mtg). These dates and locations are all subject to dispensation. Guests are warmly welcomed to attend. All meetings will include our normal philosophical discussions, passing of the charitable hat, correspondence and quick business. SWC meetings will be paired with high quality dinners and terrific fellowship.
