As in past One-Day-to-Masonry events, this one will again include a continental breakfast and a hearty lunch. All three degrees will be portrayed in full form. Brothers attending on the sidelines will enjoy the degree work every bit as much as the candidates will.
The total cost for the day (but not including the 2019 lodge dues) for each candidate will be $250.00. This $250.00 fee includes all degree fees and assessments, the white leather apron, a ritual cipher and Minnesota Masonic Manual, the meals for the candidate and other items. All Master Masons are invited and encouraged to attend. For all current Masons, sideliners and degree workers, the fee for the meals will be $15.00, covering the continental breakfast and the noon lunch. If a Brother just wants to stop in to witness some of the degree work, no reservation is required; but if the Brother plans on staying for lunch then we do need to an accurate count of how many meals to prepare; so we need those reservations as soon as you make your plans to attend. Reservations can be made by phoning the Grand Lodge office at 952-948-6700 or 800-245-6050.
First line signers are asked to have the candidate complete a regular petition for the degrees, or they can download a special One-Day-to-Masonry petition from the Grand Lodge website. The petition must be sent to the local Lodge along with the required fee and a request to attend this One-Day-to-Masonry event. Time will soon be drawing short, so do not delay—assist your candidate in completing his petition today. If you have any questions about which Lodge, procedures, special circumstances, etc., please do not hesitate to contact the Grand Secretary at the above phone numbers, or by e-mail, GrandSecretaryMinnesota@gmail.com.
