A Town Hall Meeting is called on Monday, November 30th at 7pm to be held at the Norwood Masonic Temple. The foundation of our masonic building, set by our forefathers is sound, but the building above needs polishing to make Freemasonry more relevant to the next generation. This meeting is to share what is working and what is not from personal, lodge, district and Grand Lodge levels. No idea is too big or too small.

I will moderate discussion by providing general topics, but the discussion will take a path under your direction.

The dress is business casual, and is for Master Masons Only.
No refreshments will be provided.

If you cannot attend and have any topics to submit for discussion, or you want submit them before the meeting, submit them through this link (opens in a new window).

Thank you for your efforts to better Freemasonry!
