Northwest One Day
October 19 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm CDT
A Northwest Area One-Day-to-Masonry event will be held October 19, 2019 at Aurora Lodge in Brainerd. Each area Lodge is being asked to contribute $200 to help fund the event, and in exchange, can bring their candidates. Each candidate will receive the three degrees of Masonry, a ritual cipher, and Minnesota Masonic Manual. Lunch will be provided for all in attendance. The candidate’s Lodge is responsible for collecting initiation fees and dues, and paying all Grand Lodge fees. Each Lodge will also be responsible for supplying their candidate(s) with a white apron.
W. Brother David Dumonceaux will oversee the ritual teams for the first and second degrees, and the Zuhrah Shrine Legion of Honor will confer the third degree. Volunteers are being sought for the ritual work on the Entered Apprentice and Fellowcraft degrees, especially for the lectures. If you’d like to participate, please let Dave (218-205-4880, firstname.lastname@example.org) know.
W. Brother Matt Voulgarakis will oversee candidate registration and handle finances for the event. The October 19th date should give Lodges that go dark for the summer, meetings in September and October to process any petitions that they receive over the summer months. Please let Matt (701-306-1332, email@example.com) know if your Lodge wants to register candidates.
