Masonic Con 2018

Saturday April 28th 2018

9:00 AM – ????

This year to help offset the cost, we are requesting a $5.00 donation per person (Children Free). This fee will help us get amazing speakers to Masonic Con 2018.

So, What is new this year?

As you saw above we are asking for a $5.00 donation this year to offset the costs, this event is not made as a fundraiser but the lodge can’t lose money either, which we are sure everyone understands. The Speakers will be in the Tower Lodge, which is now air conditioned. The lodge room will allow for more vendors and a smoother flow. We will be having a food truck or two out back for lunch. There will not be a Grotto or Tall Cedar Degree this year instead we will have a open festive board with the speakers with a special presentation by the Valley of Boston at the end (God Willing). The festive board will be limited amounts of tickets. If you are coming in early and want to meet the speakers over a beer? We have an exclusive event for that here. There is still much being worked out, but that is where we are at thus far….
