A Celebration for the history books!
Brethren and Friends,
The Grand Lodge of Virginia is excited to share the hospitality of the Commonwealth of Virginia with Masons from around the globe in commemoration of the George Washington Masonic National Memorial’s Cornerstone Centenni- al. I am certain that Most Worshipful Brothers Eggleston and Callahan would not recognize the many changes in the world since they worked together to start the Memorial Association. I do know that they would find solace in the steadfast efforts of many Masonic organizations to keep the memory of Illustrious Brother Washington alive and to keep the Memorial as a beacon to all.
On the occasion of the Conference of Grand Masters of North America and the Cornerstone Centennial Celebration, we look forward to hosting you just outside our nation’s capital. Every visit to this area is inspirational as one is in such close proximity to our nation’s history and are able to enjoy its many muse- ums and memorials. In addition to the meetings and fes-
tivities, we hope you can stay long enough to visit many
of the other sites included in this booklet.
Lodges from across the region are assisting the Grand Lodge to ensure this is an event for posterity. We ask you to join us in showing the strength and vitality of the Craft and be a part of this historic milestone. See you in 2023!
Sincerely & fraternally,
