General Grand Master’s Fire-Side Chat: Sunday, October 24, 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, October 24, 2021, at 3pm Mountain Time. Most Illustrious Companion Jason Mitchell will be the speaker. His topic is “Which Rite is… Right? How to Min/Max Your Masonic Experience”. 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.
