As you have seen from previous posts, I had a GREAT time in August 2011 at the MRF Symposium in Alexandria, Virginia. It was a weekend full of excellent opportunity to form the bonds of Brotherly love and friendship. I got to know Brethren that I already knew- better, and I got to meet tons of Brethren that I didn't know previously- one of the many joys of Masonic travel. I recently had a conversations with a Brother from Abravanel Lodge No. 1116, and he informed me that the MRF has posted the dates for the 2012 MRF symposium. As per their posted update:
THE THIRD MRF SYMPOSIUM WILL BE HELD ON AUGUST 24, 25 & 26, 2012 IN SAN FRANCISCO / OAKLAND , CA. -- Details to Follow Soon!
So needless to say, I'm excited! Several of the Brethren that I know have already purchased plane tickets for this event, so it looks like I am inclined to follow suit. As the MRF posts its details, I will do the same hear to ensure that all interested parties are informed. If you didn't make it last year, I strongly encourage you to attend this year! For the cost, and the opportunity of taking fellowship with so many like-minded Brethren, it's a hard to beat Masonic weekend!
