Thanks to everyone for a great Symposium!

The Second Annual Symposium was a tremendous success, gathering together over 130 brethren from over 60 lodges in 26 states and four countries for one of the most rewarding weekends of Masonic fellowship imaginable. Alexandria-Washington Lodge No. 22 hosted a festive board seated to capacity in our Grand Masonic hall, followed the next day by extremely informative panels and presentations, and a Lodge meeting where we had to bring in an entire extra row of chairs to fit everyone into our already sizable Lodge room.
It was great to see old friends again and make new ones, and to have our temple filled with some of the brightest men in our Craft. We enjoyed the participation of five PGMs, the DGM of DC, the Grand Secretary of California and the Grand Master of Minnesota. Thanks to each and every one of the brethren who came from Alaska to New Hampshire and all points in between. We truly look forward to the opportunity to meet again!

As per the suggestion we heard at the closing session, we have added a button below that will allow you to make a donation to help cover the costs of the Symposium. We thank you for whatever you are motivated to give.

It was a truly memorable event. Thanks once again for joining us in Alexandria!

Fraternally yours,

Welcome to the Second Annual MRF Symposium!

The Masonic Restoration Foundation Symposium is the largest gathering of Masons in the United States who are expressly committed to observing the highest standards of excellence in the Craft. This year the Symposium will be hosted under the auspices of Alexandria-Washington Lodge No. 22, one of the most historic lodges in the nation, and a proponent of excellence in Masonic observance.

The Symposium will take place from August 19-21, at the George Washington Masonic Memorial, with meetings conducted both in the Alexandria-Washington Lodge Room and the Memorial Theater. The event will begin with a special Festive Board held in the Grand Masonic Hall on Friday evening, featuring our Keynote Speaker, Julian Rees. Early Registration (until July 19) for the Symposium is $50.00.

This event is not to be missed, and we have secured excellent rates for accommodation at the Hilton directly across from the Memorial. All the information you need to participate is found here on this web site. We look forward to seeing you at the Symposium!
