First Masonic District Grand Master's Reception
The Grand Masters Reception will NOT be held at the Radisson as previously scheduled and announced. This is due to unforeseen circumstances within the hotel, and we have to change the venue for the Reception and lodging. If you made a reservation at the Radisson using the "Grand Master 2014" code, we understand that they were cancelled by the hotel management. However you may want to confirm that action.
The NEW venue for the Grand Masters Reception on May 3, 2014 will be the Sharonville Convention Center, 11355 Chester Rd., Cincinnati, Oh. 45246. Doors will open at 5:45, Grand Lodge introductions at 6:15, and dinner at 6:30.
The new host hotel is the LivINN Sharonville/Cincinnati North, directly next door to the Convention Center, 11385 Chester Rd., Cincinnati, Oh. 45246. You are welcome to make a reservation there and mention "Grand Lodge Group". They should have rates of $69+tax for a standard room and $79+tax for a studio room. Call them at 513.772.7877. If you have any questions or concerns, contact WB Jeff Root at 513.478.3264 or email@example.com.
