The award program was created in 2007 to honor individuals who have promoted the virtues, character and vision of George Washington. Rees received the award for his book, George Washington’s Leadership Lessons. Rees will give a talk on Washington prior to the presentation and will host a book signing afterward. (Books will be available for purchase.)

Honorable William D. Euille, mayor of Alexandria, will participate in this final event of the city’s month-long George Washington Birthday Celebration. Other distinguished guests and speakers will include Sharon Sobel, Chair of the George Washington Birthday Celebration Committee; Michael Brumback, President of the George Washington Masonic Memorial Association; George Seghers, Executive Director of the Memorial Association; and the Grand Master of Masons from Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia.

The event will begin at 2 p.m. in the Memorial Theater. A reception will be held in Grand Masonic Hall after the program to include toasts, refreshments, birthday cake, musical entertainment and fellowship. The event is free and open to the public.
