Masonic Restoration Foundation Symposium 8/28-29 in Colorado

The first Masonic Restoration Foundation national symposium will be held August 28th and 29th in Colorado Springs, CO.

The focus of the two day event will be Masonic Restoration with a primary focus on identifying a set of best practices that can be regionalized and implemented in those lodges seeking to increase the fulfillment of its members. The conference is not a standard Masonic training workshop or educational call for papers. They are taking a mixed approach of both the corporate integrated learning and team building and combining it with a Traditional Observance lodge experience so that the ideas that might be addressed have been experienced and are not purely conceptual.

Enlightenment Lodge 198 will host a tyled meeting highlighting the Traditional Observance model. The focus will be to demonstrate an educational and philosophical meeting with nationally renowned author and speaker Timothy Freke, NY Times bestselling author of The Jesus Mysteries: Was The Original Jesus A Pagan God?. Saturday's program will be at the Colorado Springs Masonic Center, 1150 Panorama Drive. Sunday will be at the Center For Creative Leadership, 850 Leader Way. Sunday evening will feature closing festivities at 15C Club, Martini and Cigar Bar 15 East Bijou, with a whiskey master and cigar roller on site.

Full agenda is available at www.traditionalobservance.com .

Seating is limited to 120, so if you plan on attending you should register as it is not even July and they are half full. Registration costs start at $110 for the Symposium alone, and vary according to activities.

The MRF provides education and training to individuals, lodges and grand lodges on ways to establish quality programs, academic excellence and social relevance in their Masonic communities.
