On Saturday April 28th 2018, Masonic Con 2018 will once again take place at Ezekiel Bates Lodge, 71 North Main Street, Attleboro, Massachusetts. This event just gets bigger and better year after year, and the organizers must be doing something right. Last year, nearly 700 attended this still-growing event.
One difference this year is that they are requesting a $5 donation to offset the costs of hosting this extravaganza. Children will be admitted free.
Attendees and speakers alike will be happy to know the Tower Lodge is now blessedly air-conditioned. There will not be a Grotto or Tall Cedar Degree this year. Instead, there will be an open festive board with speakers and a special concluding presentation by the Valley of Boston.
Featured presentations this year will include:
- Nathan Tweedie ~ Otsego Lodge #138 Cooperstown, New York
- Brother Ryan Flynn ~ Ancient York Lodge #89 Nashua, New Hampshire
- Matthew “Doc” Perry ~ St. John’s Lodge #1N Portsmouth, Rhode Island
- Tyler Beebe ~ Bay View Lodge #120 Niantic, Connecticut
- Alex Powers Gardner ~ Gardner Lodge #65 Gardner, Kansas
- Jon Ruark ~ The Patriot Lodge #1957 Fairfax, Virginia
- Angel Millar ~ Compact Lodge #402 New York City, New York
- Geeg Wiles ~ Lafayette-Greylock Lodge, North Adams, Massachusetts
- Robert Johnson ~ Waukegan Lodge #78 Waukegan, Illinois
- Michael Jarzabek ~ Brigham Lodge, Ludlow, Massachusetts
There will be food trucks on site for lunch, and an enormous collection of Masonic vendors as well. Free parking is located nearby.
