8th Annual California Masonic Symposium - August 22-23

The Grand Lodge of California, the California Masonic Foundation and the Institute for Masonic Studies are sponsoring the 2008 Annual California Masonic Symposium "Freemasonry and Women" on August 22-23 at the Brotherhood Masonic Center in San Francisco:

Many Masons would be surprised to learn of the diverse roles played and varied contributions made by women in our fraternity’s history. Join distinguished members and scholars from across the country as they explore “Freemasonry and Women”. This year’s presenters include Dr. John L. Cooper III, Grand Secretary and noted Masonic scholar; Janet Wintermute, Master Mason of the Eastern Order of International Co-Masonry; and a distinguished panel of guests. The evening’s featured speaker and Henry Wilson Coil Lecturer for 2008 will be Brother Robert G. Davis, author of Understanding Manhood in America: Freemasonry’s Enduring Path to the Mature Masculine.

Registration form can be downloaded here.

Just to cheer for the Indiana team, Janet Wintermute is an Indianapolis girl, and a graduate of Broad Ripple High School, just down the road from our lodge.
