Annual Communication, 2023
April 14 @ 8:00 am - April 15 @ 5:00 pm CDT
Brethren, our Grand Lodge has announced that the 170th Annual Communication will be held in St. Cloud, MN, April 14-15th.
More details are forthcoming. The Master and both Wardens are required to attend. Besides the interesting business of the plenary sessions, smaller breakout meetings will be held for the officers, for the Metro West area, and to support several educational topics.
The evening of Thursday the 13th will be marked by an optional reception. Some of our visiting dignitaries will be there to celebrate the completion of an excellent year with our present Grand Master, MWB Tony Krall. The opening session is on Friday morning, with black suit and tie as the suggested dress. A banquet will be held on Friday evening the 14th, also black suit and tie. The business session continues on Saturday morning, with breakouts scattered throughout the two days. Installation of the incoming Grand Master will be on Saturday the 15th, mid-afternoon. Members and guests will be able to depart at the conclusion of that ceremony.
Our three principal officers, or their proxies, will use Grandview on their phones to check in, in order for the lodge to receive per diem reimbursement.
Officers, be sure to bring your jewels of office, and your aprons.
