2nd Masonic Restoration Foundation Symposium in Alexandria, VA 8/19

The 2nd Masonic Restoration Foundation Symposium will take place from August 19-21, at the George Washington Masonic Memorial. This year the Symposium will be hosted under the auspices of Alexandria-Washington Lodge No. 22, one of the most historic lodges in the nation, and a proponent of excellence in Masonic observance.

Meetings will be held at the Memorial in the Alexandria-Washington Lodge Room and the Memorial Theater. The event will begin with a special Festive Board held in the Grand Masonic Hall on Friday evening, featuring Keynote Speaker, Julian Rees, Julian Rees, Past Junior Grand Deacon, UGLE, and Contributing Editor of Freemasonry Today magazine.

Featured speakers will include: Robert G. Davis, Shawn Eyer, Andrew Hammer, Pierre G. Normand, Cliff Porter, Paul Jacob Roberts, Mark Tabbert, and Douglas Wood.

Early Registration (until July 19) for the Symposium is $50.00. Bear in mind there are limited searts available, and last year's event in Colorado was quickly sold out. The official hotel is the Hilton Alexandria Old Town.

The Masonic Restoration Foundation is a non-profit, tax exempt 501c(3) educational organization that provides news, research, and analysis relating to the rich heritage in Freemasonry and current trends in the American Fraternal Experience. The Masonic Restoration Foundation Symposium is the largest gathering of Masons in the United States who are expressly committed to observing the highest standards of excellence in the Craft.
