Alice, Wiley the Wonder Poodle and I will be packing up the Dummkopfwägon and heading to Virginia in July.
The Grand Lodge of Virginia is offering three Grand Master's Masonic Education seminars around the state in 2008. The programs will be held Saturday, July 12th at the Richmond Scottish Rite Center; Saturday, July 19th at the Alexandria Scottish Rite; and Saturday, August 23rd at the Roanoke Scottish Rite. At each location, the venue will open at 8AM, and the first speaker will be at 9AM.
The featured speakers will be W:.B:. Mark Tabbert ("American Freemasons: Past, Present and Future"), W:.B:. W. Kirk MacNulty (“The Secret Identity of Masons”), and W:.B:. S. Brent Morris (“Itinerant American Masonic Lecturers”).
Friend and brother Mark Tabbert is, unfortunately, unable to be at the Alexandria program on July 19th, so I will be filling in for him. My topic will be "Our Laudable Pursuit: Masonry's Challenges & Opportunities."
Many thanks to organizer Kerry Kirk and Grand Master Edmund Cohen for their kind invitation. I'm looking forward to meeting brethren from Virginia.
