Our Grand Lodge's 166th Annual Communication will take place Thursday, April 11th through Saturday, April 14th at our Minnesota Masonic Heritage Center in Bloomington, MN. This is the second time our annual event has been held at this impressive new facility. The Master and Wardens are required to attend, and other officers are strongly encouraged to participate.

Details are available on the Grand Lodge website, linked here.

A new grand master will be installed in a ceremony at 2PM on Saturday.

Key items to know are: Officers, bring your jewels and aprons. Black suit or tuxedo is appropriate for the banquets and opening session, while suits are fine for Thursday and Saturday. The Thursday banquet honors MWB Halpaus, our outgoing Grand Master, and he has expressly invited members of his home lodge, family and friends to attend. On Friday, brethren should arrive no later than 8:45AM for the start of the morning's busy schedule. First a public opening, then a tiled opening at 10AM, followed by general business and several informative breakout sessions in the afternoon. Many vendors will be selling Masonic jewelry, clothing and books. The big banquet occurs Friday evening at 7PM at the Bloomington DoubleTree Hotel, at 694 and Hwy #100. On Saturday morning, business continues with a Charities-sponsored breakfast at 7AM, and the business session continuing at 8:00AM. At 2:00PM on Saturday we will install the new grand officers for the coming term, along with the installation of our new Grand Master.
