Atlantic Brotherhood Summit in Minneapolis: June 2-5
The Atlantic Brotherhood Summit, a joint event between Minnesota's Sir Winston Churchill Lodge No. 351 and the United Grand Lodge of England's Internet lodge No. 9659, will take place in Minneapolis, MN June 2-5, 2011.
Note that this date has been changed from May, in an effort to accommodate visiting brethren who may be attending the International Conference on the HIstory of Freemasonry (ICHF) in Alexandria, VA the previous weekend.
The program is still being planned, but the Atlantic Brotherhood Summit will include an American-style Barbecue, a boat cruise on the St. Croix River, a British Emulation Master Mason Degree and discussion at the Minneapolis Scottish Rite Temple, and a formal dinner and English Festive Board at the Minneapolis Club.
Sir Winston Churchill Lodge No. 351 was chartered in 2009 by the Grand Lodge of Minnesota AF&AM as an affinity lodge, in part, to perform UGLE-styled Emulation Ritual (as opposed to the Preston/Webb ritual in use in most U.S. mainstream jurisdictions).
Internet Lodge No. 9659 was consecrated in 1998 in Manchester, England, and has members from all over the world.
