Things kick off Saturday night with a dinner and a York Rite College meeting, but the program officially opens on Sunday. Nearly 400 Masons and family members attended last year's program. If you haven't been to Maggie Valley before, it may very well be the best kept secret in Freemasonry. For more information see www.yorkrite.com/nc/GSSAprogram.htm

• Richard Gan, Past Deputy Grand Secretary, Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons, London and editor of The Square Magazine
• Kevin Townley, Past Master from Colorado, and author of numerous works on esotericism, alchemy and the Western Mysteries.
