General Grand Master’s Fire-Side Chat: Sunday, July 25, 2021, at 3pm MDT (GMT-6)
Most Puissant Companion Monty Glover
General Grand Master
The General Grand Master’s Next Fire-Side Chat will be Sunday, July 25, 2021, at 3pm Mountain Time. Most Illustrious Companion Archie Smallwood will be speaking in July on Communication. His bio can be found at the bottom of this article.
See below for the registration link. The Fire-Side Chats have gone well and everyone had a great time
A simple and powerful idea – we come together as Cryptic Masons once each month, learn something, and discuss anything that is reasonable for the venue. The format will be open and it will give you an opportunity to ask questions of me, on pretty much any topic, and share in fellowship with your Companions around the World; it is a chance to, as we say in Hawaii, talk story.
